Hurraaaaa for me… 5 years and 10.000 poststhank you all. Before I get started I will post a couple of visits in the shop, this because my journey in woodworking stated out with me as a retired architect, looking for a hobby, trying to put life into an old dream of making furniture, ending up becoming a adventure of learning, meeting new people, online and in life, finding out that noting can’t be done, but the to do list grows the more we learn and do.But yes at the end what I...
Please Consider Checking Out My Website: MonkWerks.org Lets make one thing clear: I was certainly not expecting to be writing this blog entry this week. I had a lovely little piece on some preliminary reports that showed the shavings (only garnered from boards planed with a #365 Stanley Jointer plane) from 3000 year old, spalted, birdseye, curly, Spanish, aromatic bubinga cured CANCER. I had to hit the delete key, however when two things happened: 1) The world’s supply of the wood...

Last year Bert Flores and I built boxes for my grand daughter. Bert made her a beautiful jewelry box and I made a keepsakes box. She was supposed to be going in for a removal of her brain tumor that is pressing on her hypothalamus and pituitary gland.She has suffered from hydro encephalitis for about seven years now and has had to have the tubes changes every 9 to 12 months to relieve the pressure on the brain.The worst part of all this is that the father and step mother refuse to up date u...

Hey all. Yesterday was a doubly eventful day for me as my ‘Snakes’ cutting board topped 1500 reads. At the same time the ‘Zee’ box topped 700 in 1day. I am staggered, especially when I remember my first thousand reader took 57 days!. I’m really, really happy with this but I must take a moment to thank all of you who take the time to look at and comment on my work. When I joined LJ’s I never expected anyone would be this interested in my ramblings. Thank you...
This weekend I had the wonderful opportunity to go visit Ira, “Rustfever”, in Central Calif and he bestowed upon me some pieces of the greatest selection of woods I have seen in a long time. After a tour of his fantastic shop, he proceeded to take me to several “pallets” of his collection of fine woods.After about 4 hours of “drooling” and acting like a “kid in a candy store” I selected the following: 8 boards of “Red Gum Eucalyptus...
Thanks for all the kind welcomes! I look forward to (hopefully) adding to the other great projects on the site. Also, as per your warnings, I’ve already figured out that this site is addictive!! I just ordered my table saw on Sunday and should have it by Friday! LOL
