Didnt get as much done today as I had hoped. I finished the template contraption on the MDF, to help with keeping things square during glue up…. I rough cut, to length, all of the frame pieces and straightened one edge on the jointer… ...still need to rip them to width on the table saw and cut them to actual length, which I just barely got started with… The scraps are starting to pile up though… Sorry there’s not much to this blog ent...
There is a “Girl” in the Shop Yes it is true and also wonderful for keeping the Boys under control. Although we don’t have a toilet seat issue. One of the great things about converting an old commercial building is that we have Ladies Gents & disabled toilets. Oddly, when our female friends first get the tour they always say that “you will be removing the urinals, wont you”? Well no! I’ve got sons, grandsons and I also come from a long line of men and it says Men on the door so they...
I have been looking at this great group and site for a week and decided to join today. I am just getting started in my woodworking adventure as a approach 50 years old. All the kids are gone and love being in my 20×30 shop in the backyard. I have already found several projects on the site I am interested in trying and they will definitely stretch my woodworking skills, but I have to start some where. Looking forward to years of adventure. I would be interested in meeting anyone in t...
In the past I had this old Performax 22/44 sander set up on a Delta turret radial arm saw. I used the motor on the saw for a few years, but it wasn’t very satisfactory. I took the sander apart and haven’t used it in years but I’ve decided to get it going again. I removed the carriage and turret from the Delta RAS (it’s a 9” and never had a guard so I never had any interest in using it for its intended purpose – still, it is very well made). I have a...
For some reason my last entry wouldn’t let me add this picture for the sanded piece.

Howdy, Not much time for woodshop lately but I have been able to put a little time in here and there. Today was about 4 hours. Here is where I’m at. I did some hand planning to get it in earshot range. I used a stiff metal yardstick like a scree to reveal high spots. Len – listen up please. I grabbed a card scraper and took down some of the ridges left by the planning. I know I need to keep working on the scraper edge. I ended up using the ROS after my hands got tired...
The past month or so has passed in a blur, with a flurry of activity. It seemed that only yesterday we were getting ready to head to Chicago, stopping on the way in New York to teach a couple of classes, and now we are already midway through November. What a busy time it has been! I can’t speak for Keith, but as for myself, I am a bit tired. Not sleepy tired, but tired in the good way as when you just finished a nice, healthy exercise routine. In a way, the past month or so has be...
So…about me. I am almost 30 years old and grew up in northwestern Georgia. At 18 I joined the US Navy and decided to volunteer for submarines. I went to basic training in Great Lakes, IL and on to “A” school and Nuclear Power School in Goose Creek, SC, just outside of Charleston. After that I was assigned to the USS Miami based out of Groton, CT. I spent the next 5 years on board this wonderful ship. I went on 2 deployments, the first to the north Atlantic and the second to ...
