I am an old woodworker who lives In Grand Rapids, Mi. I like to try all kinds of projects and this web site really gives me inspiration and encouragement. The talent in woodworking displayed here is amazing.

This year the project for our park model was a new deck. This grouping of photos show how I built it- but not the conventional way. I designed it to have drawers below for storage and wanted the railing on the outside of the deck the carpet could...
My Craftsman lathe would not change speeds so I had to stop and fix it today and I’d thought I’d share the process in case someone else has this problem. This is my second Craftsman 15×38 wood lathe and they both have had this pro...
