I am 66 years old and have been retired for 1-1/2 years. I retired due to arthritis as well as having 2 hip replacements and 1 shoulder replacement. I started woodworking about one year ago and I consider myself a novice. I had planned on teaching myself woodworking and have accumulated lots of woodworking equipment over the past few years although I seldom used any of the "stuff."

A friend of mine in Ft. Worth, TX quit woodworking and I drove down there this past winter and brought back lots of hand tools, a chop saw, small lathe, and about 400 board feet of lumber. All sorts of treasure that otherwise I never would have owned.

I have a drum sander, table saw, band saw, several routers, 2 router tables, joiner, planer, drill press, vacuum press for veneering, etc... all crammed into a small workshop so almost anything I do requires me to move something(s).

I have puttered around with veneering table tops and find it interesting and challenging. So far I have made: a nice 50" x 88" assembly table for the workshop; bandsawn box, jewelry box with 3 drawers made from canary wood (works nice) and tiger maple; a coffee table made from Sapele veneer and walnut; several mantel clocks (cherry, walnut, tiger maple); small walnut table to display a mounted bobcat; a table made from Imbuyia wood and Imbuyia veneer (picked up both at a garage sale) and it is a beautiful dark wood; an 8-drawer wine cabinet made from walnut and walnut crotch veneer, a CD cabinet made from cherry that holds 520 CDs; and, a tiger maple table with 2 drawers and walnut legs (surprisingly - it tuned out quite nice).

Current projects are nesting tables (cherry and Rosewood veneered tops); walnut wall clock with veneered inlay; and a quilted maple (wood not veneer) table. The table project has me currently stumped, and on hold, as I cannot figure out how to make legs tapered equally on 4 sides from 1-1/2" square 23" long tiger maple blanks.

If anyone has plans for a jig or other suggestions for my table leg agenda I would really appreciate it.

Hobbies? I like my vegetable garden, woodworking, and I am an avid deer hunter.

I live in Billings, MT now but I am originally from Centerburg, up in Knox county.

Most of my best work is in the Cooper House back in Ohio. You can see it in my business site gallery.

Hi there,
Welcome to LumberJocks… I joined the site myself a few months ago and will give you fair warning, this site is VERY ADDICTIVE, VERY EDUCATIONAL, and VERY FUN…. so sit back, enjoy the ride and learn from the other LJ’s as they are a group of extremely talented people that are also very friendly…

Enjoy your time here on LJ and pass the word to any of your woodworking buddies about us…

Wisty

-- New Project = New Tool... it's just the way it is, don't fight it... :)

Have your say...
