So, my 25 year old son and I want to build a trellis for his hops for homebrew. This is our start, green bamboo that I cut and transported home. Happy fathers day all! Okay purists, it’s a grass! Not WOOD. Posting anyway.

A good deal of the tools I own are older than I. (02/59) Some are quite a bit older. Every cast iron table, the columns for the DP and the lathe were rusted enough to make a grown man cry. I have taken many long hours to restore the usefulness to all of the major machines. There's always another hand plane or chisel waiting for me when I decide it's time for another. I still haven't gotten around to my lathe yet, as far as gettin' her to go. But, I have at least stopped the bleeding and gave her a good coat of T-9.
My shop is/was a down and dirty throw together, a situation that has many drawbacks. New fixtures and especially jigs are a must at this point. My new found inspiration to get off my butt is right here among these pages.

This build has been in ‘progress’ far too long. It started with a reset of my kitchen layout that my Wife and I agreed upon. Much of a back-story here, but in the essence of brevity, I’ll just say this is the point I got to quick...
