I work as a regional airline pilot and live near Charlotte, NC. I'm the father of five wonderful kids who keep me busy when I'm home. I can thank my wife for allowing me to find time to work on projects otherwise I wouldn't get much opportunity to work in my shop. Most of my projects are based on necessity or made as gifts and I always have a long list of project ideas with not enough time to build them.

I’ll end any suspense right now and say that I didn’t make my Christmas deadline for this project and at the rate I’ve been going, I’ll be lucky to make her birthday in June! At any rate, I finally have the boat out of the...
I mentioned in the last entry how little I liked the screws in the top cap rail so I took a fellow LJ’s advice and I’m going to ditch the screws and use dowels instead. Problem is that there are marks from the screws so I need to do s...
