I retired back in April, 2007. My biggest fear was not having anything to do in retirement or finding something that would only interest me for a few months and then dropping it. I enjoyed woodworking but only had a little training freshman year in high school. After retiring I took a number of woodworking classes at the local adult ed. which gave me the knowledge and confidence to actually do something correctly without cutting off a finger. It's been awhile now and I live in my shop - aka, my garage. As a result of being in my garage I've gotten to know a number of my neighbors, who before were just cars that I waved to in passing.
As for my project list - my wife keeps me very busy. I'll figure I'll be in the garage for a long time just on her current list which continues to grow.

I was trying to find a good article/link about popping the grain in black walnut but didn’t find one that really explained it for me. There are many articles/links dealing with maple though. As luck would have it, our woodworkers club in a...
