I've been woodworking for a good number of years now.
I am now retired from a steel mill and have much more time to devote to it.
I now very rarlely build things for other people as it is too much like work.
I have been building Toys&Joys toys lately, but I just finished a new bench for my lathe.
-- If we learn from our mistakes, I'm getting a fantastic education.

Last night I photocopied the side trim pieces for the tender and glued them to 1/16” maple and black walnut stock. Then I cut the pieces for the side panels, back, side rack, back rack and the water tank. The side panels and back from 3/8” ...
This morning I cut and drilled the wheel trim pieces. Looking at the 3/8” square cuts I thought that I would try not using the scroll saw. So I dug out my 3/8” hollow mortising chisel and took the auger out. Using a soft blow mallet I tried...
