I opted for the Kreg Precision Trak and Stop System for my miter saw fence. I attended the New England Woodworking Show in January and Peachtree was selling the system at a discount that put the price lower than any I had seen so I bought it. Wh...

I am fifty-something. I am married to my wonderful wife of 35 years. In 1978 I made a plywood rolling cabinet for my then, photography hobby and I was hooked on woodworking. For Christmas 1979, I put a Craftsman radial arm saw on my wish list and Santa, aka my wife, brought it. (See I told you she is wonderful.) Nearly 30 years later, in May 2009, I bought my first table saw. Wow, I thought I enjoyed woodworking before! What an awesome tool to use.
A native New Englander, I was raised a Red Sox, Celtics and Patriots fan (actually NY Giants until the Pats came along in 1960). It's my great hope that the NY lumberjocks will put woodworking before the Red Sox/Yankee rivalry!
Over the years, I have made beds for my children, hutches, a Queen Anne style coffee table (Those cabriole legs are challenging!), gifts for friends and relatives, etc. I guess I am most proud that I made my wife and my entire bedroom set from red oak. This includes a king-size bed, a mirrored dresser for her, a five-drawer chest of drawers for me and two nightstands.
I am delighted to have found this site while doing a search on reviews for the Rikon 14" band saw. I have found it to be a wonderful site for comaraderie, sharing of knowledge and advice/information.

As noted in my previous post, the counter tops consist of a layer of MDF topped off with phenolic plywood. T-track runs the length of the countertop and is the means by which the fence system will be held in place. I purchased Woodpecker’s DP (d...
With the cabinets in place, I turned my attention to the shelf that would be placed between them, on which the saw will sit. Because I had some questions about attachment of the fence, I contacted Fine Woodworking magazine and obtained Bob O’Brie...
In Fine Woodworking magazine’s Winter 2014 Tool & Shops annual issue, Robert O’Brien shared his various shop work stations, including a chop saw station. As I studied it, I came to really like it, and decided to build one identical to it. It...
Enough people have asked me how the Bow Boxes I made and posted were crafted that I figured a blog was warranted. My post is here “Bow Box”: http://lumberjocks.com/projects/68845. I have seen others make the boxes and thought you mig...
