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 ...
Alright, been a while since I last posted anything. Not much to say except that I am one arrogant PITA to myself… I am kind of pissed at myself for taking on a project of that magnitude :D. After all the hours I have put in, it would have been cheaper to buy some higher end cabinets. But alas, even if I did, they would have not been as durable as these 3/4 baltic birch bad boys. But I am sure it will all be well worth it in the end. Some pics about the project then: Damn, some...

It does not require a large amount of space. My area is about half of a half of a two car garage. The wife’s car stays in the garage and my truck stay...
My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1269: Parsley, Sage, Rosemary and Thyme . . .
OK – Now you all have that song going through your head. It was hard not to think of it all the while I was making this project. I don’t know what it is with me and bunnies lately, but I just have a lot of “bunny” ideas that I am thinking about. Maybe it has to do with the time of year me thinking ahead to warmer days. This is a project that I am doing for the June issue of Creative Woodworks and Crafts magazine. The theme for the magazine is “summer̶...
I thought I had better post this blog as I decided today to cut one of the four trays down to allow its use. Now its currently unfinished due to the possibility of laser engraving, but here it is in its raw pre assembled form. The spooky faces are still visible Here is a bit of a close up for a “better” view. And another view from a slightly different angle Then a fitting end shot I am sure you will see it again finished and posted as a project,...
~Felin Pre order pre sale review of the Bosch 1617 router : Well so far I am very happy with the idea of ordering theBosch 1617 router . I haven’t spent any money, so that is always a positive. Previewing the pre sale is going well . The Bosch is blue in color . That’s important . I bought a Bosch router table especially because it was blue and would match the Bosch router .
