I consider myself a beginning woodworker. What ever I know about woodworking comes from my middle school shop teachers and watching PBS. I have a few projects under my belt and have a good start on a home workshop.
I have learned how to sharpen chisels, and that it takes 6 stitches to close the hole that a 1" chisel makes when you slip and run it into your hand! At least I can still count to ten without taking my socks off.
My other hobby is R/C airplanes, and I design and kit my own planes. I'm self taught with AutoCAD and have used that to sketch up and design the woodworking pieces I've made so far.

I’ve been pretty productive over my holiday break. I received a new 3/8” up cut router bit and collet. I tried finishing up the mortise on the breadboard ends on my router table, but was still getting a lot of vibration and weird sou...
I have some time off for the holidays, so I’ve got the top glued up. This took three days to accomplish. I put together a long ripping jig to to get a straight edge on all of the boards. I had an old oak shelf with a machined edge on it, ...
I trekked to the local lumber mill this morning, and picked through their pile of 5/4 cherry looking for a couple more boards for the top. I also took the rest of the top boards since my planer sled can only handle 4’. They jointed one fac...
