I am an engineer by trade and work in my home shop as a hobbiest. I've been wood working since childhood with my Dad. While I was in college, I worked for my Uncle as a carpenter and plumber.
I am often inspired by something I see on the street, at work, on TV, or on line. Then I go and build it. When I am working in my shop, I am lost in my own world and never happier.
My shop is in the basement of our building, about 12' square and doubles as a laundry room. We live in an apartment with small and odd sized rooms, so I just build furniture to suit. Hope you enjoy the postings from this dumb Chicago polock!

So the last house didn’t work out and as such either did the shop. We just moved into a brand new apartment building and it’s nice not having to spend my time dealing with 125 year old plumbing and electrical issues. I have a bas...
The Broken Carpenter. Funny to think, I felt quite broken when I came up with that blog title. It’s been a year since; and I feel very much changed. Last year, my family and I moved to a new house, mostly we moved due to family issues, and ...
I took a LJ’s advice and installed another light fixture. Brigher is even better! And I love having so much room to work. Today, I was re-building the boy’s wagon. I have room to perform my layout, use the router table, use t...
