So a coworker of mine decided to be generous, but not in the way I would have liked… this colleague decided to come to work sick, and share the joy as it were.. Now I am out, although working remotely, and feeling pretty miserable… ...

Came back to woodworking after ending a lousy domestic situation. I've been blessed now with the world's best wife, and a well equipped shop. Hopefully I can get back up to speed skills wise...
Wood shop for me was one of the few classes in Junior High and High School that I actually enjoyed, and looked forward to. I built a lot of projects back then, everything from coat trees and kitchen tables to convex curved gluelams for skateboards. From 1987 to 2004 my total woodworking projects consisted of building a replacement dinette table / berth base for a rented travel trailer (it was cheaper to buy the router, bits, and cheap router table and do it myself in the time I had left than it was to buy a pre made piece, when all was said and done noone could tell...) some fence repairs on my house, and a strong tie and 2x4 workbench. Since restarting I have made countless bowls, spindles, boxes, step stools, toy cars and whatnot. Only very few of them worth talking about, but I am loving it. I really only started in earnest in early 2008, and have been getting in as much shop time as I can.
I am a system administrator by day, and do woodworking and other DIY pursuits for a creative outlet and stress relief.

I have a new post on my blogger blog… http://daves-workshop.blogspot.com/2...t-i-built.html I have a couple of spots that could be redone / fixed due to operator error, but I doubt I will. It is only cosmetic and I just don’t car...
I have a fresh post up on http://daves-workshop.blogspot.com/2014/03/miter-saw-dust-hood-plumbing-complete.html Quick summary though. The ducting for the miter saw dust hood is done, tied into the original system. With that part of the bench do...
I have been wondering if I should mention this, and I figure somebody might read this and have this click if and when they try to do the stupid thing I did… Simply put, I tried cutting too short of a piece of SCH20 PVC pipe on the miter s...
I finally got the SCMS dust hood finished and installed. Just need to finish up the ducting which will probably happen this weekend… The design is pretty simple, just an open frame held together with pocket screws and glue, a simple top s...
