If a woodworker is going to have electrical and mechanical equipment in his shop he should also acquire the skills to setup and repair those machines, or keep a mechanic handy. They won’t be cheap unless they are sons or brothers. I have both who are very skilled. I have tried to have them teach me what I need to know. If they have done tasks like wire in a panel or box then I attempt to copy their work. I heard my planer yesterday begin to make a loud racket. This morning I found t...

I sanded it and now it looks great in my end table.

View on YouTube I visited Michael Cooper in January of 2016. Michael is an unbelievably creative and talented guy. His body of work is so impressive that you will have to see it to believe it. He and his wife, Gayle, are as friendly, nice, and down to earth as Michael is talented. If I had to sum them up in one word it would be “Wonderful”. Michael Cooper Shop Entrance Entrance to Michael Cooper’s Shop Michael has a 2000 sq. foot shop in northern California. The setting is...

Otherwise, well, you get the idea! If anyone knows the RIGHT way to embed videos then I would love it if you would ...
