Well I don't have a permanent shop but I make do with what I have.
Every machine I own has a story behind it!!
Seems like most of my nice pieces go away as gifts but I do enjoy seeing others appreciate my creations!
Woodworking is one of many (too many?) hobbies...
Cycling (the pedal kind) photography, hunting, fishing, two daughters....the list goes on!!
I tend to be somewhat of a purist in that I generally will not stain a wood to a different color. If I need a dark wood....I use a dark wood....need a light wood....use a light wood etc...
I will do what I need to do in order to make a particular species like curly maple or QSWO grain "pop" as much as possible but I really enjoy using contrasting woods together on a project, and let the woods speak for themselves.

Welcome to Lumberjocks. The projects are an inspiration, the information is priceless and the people are supportive. The only problem is, the site can get addictive.

God Bless

I followed grizzman here. Want more information. If your chest is an indication of what you’re building, you sincerely need to post more!
