34yrs old 1 of 4 sons, 1 of 5 kids, electrician for 15 yrs, bass player 17 yrs or so, father of a 4yr old son a 2 yr old daughter and a brand spanking new (1/22/16) baby girl. my favorite season of the year is football, momma cooks every Wednesday and Sunday, Dad sometimes in between, and I just effing like building stuff. Mainly out of wood. Usually not by myself if I can help it. And my wife usually hates it. But she says it's better than me playing call of duty till 4am. The tramp.
PS cooking with oak or pecan over a fire pit could probably make a turd taste better. But shrimp and boudin are usually better to eat.
Fried fish and étouffée. Doesn't get any better than that. Unless it's Saturday night in Death Valley.
Chance of rain?
And I really hate Les Miles. He's a horrible coach.
I bleed purple and gold. LSU

I milled the leg and spacers/support block out of the same chunk of oak. The screw and nut are the remnants of what I bought for my end vise. A cove cut on the table saw and an 3/8” round over gave me the basic profile. I smoo...
I needed an end vise for ma bench. So I built one. White oak was the hardest wood I had on hand in a useable quantity. I’ll try to keep it short. Didn’t have a large enough piece for the chop(?) but I had 2 that I really liked. So I...
I left off with some cypress jointed and planed for the stretchers with a loose idea of what I wanted to do. I was originally hoping to do a “loopy” sort of deal (like the loopy infill), but I’d need to invest in a router guide b...
(Quite a few pics with this blog) I guess I am a cheap and a glutton for punishment. Off cuts of poplar, red grandis, and a tiny bit of maple from a local cabinet shop. Plus some white and red oak scraps i had on hand. After joint...
