Fellow Lumberjocks! First, I would like to shed some perspective on what caused me to write this. I have been working tirelessly on making a large amount of peices for a national event. In doing so, I planned a quota for production. With one pl...

I am an artist by nature, as i assume most on here are in some way. I primarily like to paint. I am "self-taught" and have discovered the need to expand my skills in other areas to save money.
I would classify myself as the "Jack of all trades" because I have explored art in many forms such as: playing over 6 different musical instruments, gourmet chef (in my own home), professional landscaper, poet, etc. I have a bachelors degree in Marketing.
I ventured into woodworking in early 2010 when I made a fraternity shield. I have also found that building my own canvases, easels, and frames also saves money and is enjoyable. I have since purchased a home and will be building built-in bookcases and closet storage, and probaly finishing my basement.
I recently purchased a used Jet JSTS 10 table saw for my small area of the Man Cave that I have sectioned off as my woodshop/art studio. I also own a SKill router, corded drill, and circular saw, Dremel Tro and a smaller Dremel finishing tool. Dewalt cordless drill and recipracating saw, RYObi Miter was with stand, PC jigsaw, and CH brad nailer and compressor.
I look forward to reading posts and learning tidbits as I progress along.

I say that this is the finish, but at this point there is minor work to be done, but done enough! Ill begin this with the electrical. I picked up the halogen recessed lighting and wired it up. I could easily cut through the wall since the side ...
One thing that is consistent with my home is chair rail molding. its in the foyer, dining room, everywhere. So I made up my mind to tie that in with the doors. A gift from the sawdust gods supplied me with 126 feet of free chair rail, so i was set...
The shelves, the shelves, the shelves! There were so many “learning experiences” with this portion. I never made a dado cut. I didnt have a dado blade set, or a dado insert for my table saw, and my fence was too short to support my wor...
Before I begin my narrative on the construction of the cabinets, I want to shed a few more details about the base. When the carpet was removed I used a spade bit to make a 1 and 1/4 ” hole through the floor. My basement is unfinished and i c...
