Hi guys and gals,
It’s been a while since I’ve been here,
I’m finally feeling much better and back to work full time after having a stroke.I didn’t work at all for 6 mos. and I have been building my strength up. It was a tough road but I made it.
All you young guys, take care of your health man, I truly thought I was superman and nothing could stop me or slow me down, It’s to late once it happens. I was one of the lucky ones who have been given a second chance…....anyway enough of that,back to our love of woodworking….....

I’ve been fooling around with a free program called Windows movie maker and I made a video of some completed work. I invite you to come view it and maybe give some feedback.

It’s located in 2 spots, youtube at


this is such a great site

Gregg – glad to hear you’ve got your second chance and that you are back in the shop. The video was nice, you’ve got some really good work there. Hopefully things will pick up for you, but don’t go to fast, ease back into things.

Hope you continue your recovery and glad to have you back on LJs!

Video looks great. Looks like you do high quality work. Great looking projects, and glad you are feeling better.

Hey Gregg
Glad your recovery has worked out ,many folks that have strokes are not as fortunate as you and never get back to work. You’ve done a lot of impressive work and your video is great. Good to see back on Ljs and back in the saddle.

Glad to hear that you are doing better. I love the downdraft outfeed table. I’ve been thinking about building something like that for awhile. With a small shop, i am always looking to combine functionality. Thanks for the ideas.
