I have many woodworkers in my family, but never really got involved with it personally until my father in law which used to be a carpenter came to visit and built my wife and I a custom bed and some cabinets. I started helping him out, and finally got hooked on it myself, and have been taking upon myself to make anything we need, or anything I can - myself. Not only does it allow me to create, but it also provide us with custom builds, which you can't really find anywhere else.
With a baby daughter joining our family, woodworking projects are lining up in the back burner and are awaiting to come out to life....
Stay tuned as I hope to share these projects as they are brought to life.
oh yeah, and Lev in hebrew is a Heart - hence PurpLev.

With everyone getting stuck up and all sensitive about sharpening and what not lately I figured what better time to have yet another sharpening related post – so here it is – my way – at least nowadays (it keeps evolving as the y...
While I have been turning small stuff for a while, I guess I never really took the time to write about it. My first introduction to turning was when I was a youngster. my cousin was turning bowls and vessels and he would let me monkey around wi...
