In another step towards a blended shop, I’ve decided to take a dip in the Festool Pool… Yesterday I ordered the RO125 and the CT22 package from Festool Junkies. I’ve got to give props to Timmy C., the proprietor of Festool Junki...

Probably about time for a profile update...
Been woodworking for about 12 years now.
Have mostly converted to using hand tools instead of power tools, though I do still own a table saw and an old 8" Wallace jointer. I'll probably sell the jointer in short order and... might even sell the table saw, as well, but it is more likely that I'll keep that crutch in the garage for a while still.
Working on outfitting my new-ish basement shop. In the near future, will be building a bench. Currently working on building a saw horse and rehabbing some tools and getting rid of lots of other tools.
I prefer using quality tools, whether they are new or old. Buy quality and cry once; buy cheap and cry every time you buy a new one (or it ruins a project). Lately I've been spending more time rehabbing tools I've picked up over the years - I learn something with each tool and I get a better understanding of how it works and how best to use it.
I am a writer by trade and working on various ways to combine my love of writing with my love for all things woodworking. You will soon start seeing articles from me on www.wkfinetools.com. I have one or two other things coming down the pipeline. More on that later.
I do most of my writing on my blog - http://thekiltedwoodworker.com I'm afraid I'm probably not going to duplicate my writing here; I tried for a while and it was too tedious.

(an excerpt from http://greystonegreen.blogspot.com) My wife and I took a trip across the river to the monthly Belleville Flea Market this past weekend. We combined that with a visit to my great Aunt Edy who is about 80 and still walks five mi...
Wait a second… Is it really a commissioned work? Maybe not. I agreed to make the cross, but I decided to not charge them for it (ehhh… it isn’t something I really want to put in my Gallery of Finished Pieces, you know? ItR...
Funny how He is always challenging me, especially when I think I’m at my limit and barely have time to breath, much less take on another woodworking task. A few weeks ago, my wife’s co-worker lost his dad. We went to the wake to gi...
Finished but not finished? What does that mean? It means I spent some time this evening applying two coats of garnet shellac and then rubbing out the finish with Renaissance wax and steel wool, but I’m not done with the interior divider,...
