Busy working dad of two who, when finds the time, enjoys woodworking. Having built heirloom quality items such as a walnut rocking horse and walnut federal style night stand to everyday items such as a birch plywood bed rails topped with red oak accent pieces, shoe case, closet organizers, kitchen pantry, kids play table and train table all the way down to shop made solutions cobbled together for aids I enjoy it all. I enjoy reading and learning other members techniques and tips and often live vicariously through other's projects until I have time for some of mine.

And the brainstorming continues: After much thought, the necessary thickness to recess the t-track would make the jig too thick to allow for use with the router, there simply would not be enough depth left to work with. Why build just a sawboar...
Well the sawboard is a pretty simple jig, but man is it invaluable! The other day I needed to rip long taper cuts on a 2×6 and it was just the tool. I have been thinking about incorporating some holding clamps to the base to make it quicker t...
Ok, so it’s much more fun to dance than to fix…. Apparently welding a frame should not be undertaken without proper support, or ahh… more experience. The frame had a twist to it across the 59.5” length! I cleared a sect...
The mobile workstation is in my opinion going to be the center of my workshop once its built. An integrated router table, table saw, downdraft table and ample storage in a ~ 5’ x 2’ area on wheels! Certainly not my idea, however, the l...
