« Part 15: Project of a Lifetime. Part 16 of dust stuff series Part 17: Back in the shop »

Well it’s been awhile my sawdust friends. I’ve been spending all my time on another of those life long projects and I thought I would let you guys and gals see the progress.

I would like to introduce Gabriel Phoenix. He was born on Aug. 10th. He is number 5 for us and has been a complete joy. When I am able to get back into the shop, I will be sure to share my woodworking with you, but until then, I will enjoy being a father to my kids.

Well wait until the joy cools off and the diaper duty gets too hard, and you’ll be back in the shop.

Joey, what a nice picture. I have been blessed with my first grandchildren the past two years. They are a joy, and it has given me a chance to reprise the time in my life when I enjoyed being a parent of small children…an unexpected benefit.

Well done! As the father of one, I can’t see (from a logistics standpoint alone) how anyone can do this more than once. Five? Wow.

Handsome little guy. Babies are so great when they’re quiet!

Thank you. We just believe in large families. Some folks need a big TV and a fancy car, I just need a bunch of kids running around laughing and playing. Much better investment.
