Location: Brookfield, Ohio

Retired cabinetmaker, tool junkie, and miracle worker. I seem to be able to make things work that others won't bother with. I love bringing old tools back to life and fixing most anything. There's just a good feeling about making something useful again.
I live in northeast Ohio. I hunt, fish, work on my old Jeep CJ5, and spend a lot of time at garage sales and flea markets looking for old tools. I have managed to put together a nice collection of good American made tools. I am not physically able to do all the things I would like to do, but I manage to keep busy.
I am glad to find this site and look forward to learning from all of you. This is a great site and I hope I can contribute some of the things I have learned from my experiences and mistakes, and I've made my share of mistakes. I guess that's the best teacher!

-- Every day above ground is a good day!!!

Good looking jewelry box. I know she will be proud. My sawmill guy came up with a bunch of 10” wide sassafras lumber. I bought several nice boards and have made a good many projects with it. Works good and smells so nice. Glad you are on here.
