I work as a physicist/engineer for a semiconductor company making acoustic signal processing microchips. I have been married to my wife for about 10 years and we have three little kids. I have been woodworking since I was 8, but had a break for several years while in school.
My preferred projects are guitars and anything guitar related, though I also dig furniture and jewelry boxes.

Alright, I haven’t posted in a little while owing to needing to make a blade. Well, the stock came and I finally made one. It is 5/32” O1 that is just a tiny bit narrower than the plane opening to allow for side to side adjustments. ...
As some of you may have seen, I built a prototype of a small infill smoother (blog starts here). This went well enough that I decided to make one for myself from precision ground steel. Well, as it turns out, with the way lengths work for precis...
