In the name of matrimonial harmony we are now living in Webster, NY, just east of Rochester. A brisk 12-minute walk from my in-laws.
I live here with my wife and two sons, ages 3 and 5. They love coming down to help me, I think they have measured almost everything in the shop with my calipers, at least twice.
As a digital design engineer by day for a local communications company, and a father, woodworker, skier, biker, etc. the rest of the time, I don't have too much free time. We had our new house built and had the builder leave a lot unfinished. So I am working on building our custom built-ins for the walk-in closets and other such features.
So hopefully we will be here for a long time.

Hal’s new book and plan templates arrived the other week. Since I am gearing up to complete two customer chairs by xmas this was a welcome change. The book is longer, contains some new hints, details and is actually simpler in many ways th...
So today is the last day of assembly. After the epoxy sets up overnight, the leg/rocker joints gets sanded and then the chair gets final sanded and finished… Starting out I took my belt sander to the top of the back legs to give them the...
