I live here in north KCMO and work as a project manager for an engineering firm. I have 2 kids that keep me runnin'. I started wood working in middle school and have been on-again/off-again ever since. I purchased a tablesaw and drill press in 2008...the dust has been flyin' ever since. Most recently, I've purchased a bandsaw and planer......before long, I'll need a bigger garage!

My folks cut down a birch in their front yard a couple weeks ago and saved me a 5-foot length of the trunk. Craigslist helped me find “Tom the Sawyer”, about 20 minutes from the office. Made an appointment and stopped by this morning...
Today our family went to visit my folks for a late Christmas. My brother-in-law, who runs a mobile saw mill, brought me a couple turning blanks fresh from his farm. The smaller (about 12×12) is elm, and the larger is red oak. He knew IR...
Today I decided to try my hand at making a book matched panel that will fit nicely into a lid for a box project I’ve been thinking about. For my first attempt, I think it turned out fairly well. Now to find time to build the rest! I wou...
