I have been really busy with contracts this last month +. I did catch up on about 30 pages a couple of weeks ago, but today was almost overwhelming!! Wish I had time to comment on more of them, but the volume is too high. I have had a few LJs ...

I'm a worn out electrician fiddling with wood. My first wood projects were whittling toys in my spare time as a kid. My spare time for whittling was usually waiting to change cows in the barn while my dad milked.
When I was a senior in high school, I needed a project for ag shop. I decided to build a gun cabinet. I had never had any training in wood working except helping my dad on the farm. I invented what I didn't know how to do using plywood and lumber from the local lumber yard. I copied a design I saw in the Sears and Roebuck catalog.
I have moved on to bigger and better things and methods ;-)) I have done a bit of cabinet work, stock making for modern and Kentucky rifles, box making, ect. One of these days, I think I'll get into turning, but time never seems to allow me to catch up on the pile that needs to be finished!!

The boyz at the rifle range have been concerned about a tree above the back stop falling down and damaging the high power target carriers and roof. Its roots have been emerging from the hill for years. We have some awesome wind storms at times. ...
Cut my first dadoes tonight with a real dado blade set. Several years ago, pre Topamax, I bought a wobble blade. It needed an insert so I took my saw model to Sears. They had to order one. It didn’t fit. I figured I’d have to make...
I took the plunge today! I finally bought a Magswitch featherboard at Rockler. I have been eyeballing them for a long time, but too stingy to let go of $70! I thought I would just get a couple magnetic switches to make up my own. The other opt...
