I'm a carpenter and woodworker that likes making things out of wood.
Spent many years with a saw and hammer working my way through a natural progression from being a carpenter's helper to getting to work with nicer pieces of wood and on more interesting projects.
I like the way wood looks, the grain and all.
I like the way wood feels to the touch.
I like the smell of wood it make me feel good.
Especially in the spring and fall.
When I can work outside in the shade of a tree.
Wood has been very, very good to me.
Note* Almost all of my projects pictured here are from reclaimed wood.

I finished the outfeed extension for my tablesaw over the weekend. I used all cutoffs, no new wood here I’m trying to keep the cost down. So far I have $250.00 spent on the saw but it was a package deal. There was a 10” Delta mitersaw ...
