I really need to check in more often. I am just flooded with other issues these days. My shop looks like a tornado hit it, and I haven’t spent any woodworking time out there since May…. Been busy with home repair / truck repair project...

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.

Another update. Pressure is holding fast. My brain is probably going OCD on this whole thing as I am wondering if I should upgrade the connection between the filtration rig and the hose reel with something like Rapidair, copper, or even black iron...
I did some additions to my compressed air system, by adding a Central Pneumatic Desiccant Dryer / Oil Removal filter, and coupler bracket. I also chased down the last few leaks, and replaced a defective replacement regulator on my HF 8 gallon comp...
I didn’t have a bunch of shop time this weekend, but I managed to whip up a retainer of sorts for my respirators that I mounted to the door. Even though it was plainly obvious to me, it was not to other members of the household… I a...
Okay not entirely wood related, but close enough… With the very little shop time I have been able to spend over the last couple of days I have finally gotten the evasive leak fixed. Turned out to be a FPT male coupler that just did NOT wa...
