Location: On the Lake - MN

I live on a lake in westcentral Minnesota, with my wife of fourty four years & two grandchildren and a springer spaniel named Buster (the wonder dog). Woodworking has been my hobby since woodshop 1962. My shop is in the lower level (walk out). Both of the grandkids (Emmaly 17 and Devon 14) spend a lot of time in the shop with me. They both enjoy making sawdust.

Welcome to Lumberjocks.

If you cover the ‘boat’ in your picture with sawdust it will last much longer and use up some of the mounds of sawdust that seem to collect with this hobby :-)
