I first started woodworking with my Dad many years ago, but just took it up again a few years ago. My wife would say that it is just an excuse to collect more tools. I have a small shop in a 1 car garage. My dream is to one day have a shop building separate from my house. Most of my projects have been various cabinetry projects ranging from shop cabinets, blanket chest, writing desk, book shelves and an entertainment center. I am beginning to experiment with wood turning and carving.

I have a new wrinkle in my workshop overhaul. I’ve been working on getting all of my larger machines arranged in an attempt to arrange them as efficiently as I could. However, I now have a new wrinkle that is going to require a little bit ...
Well the shop overhaul is making progress now. I got a lot of work done the past two weekends. All of the electrical is done (no more seaching for a place to plug something in) and the lighting is all installed. It is much brighter. I am going...
Well it is an understatement to say that my shop is a mess right now. I have so much stuff crammed in this 24X12 space that it is really difficult to work around all of the stuff that I have in there. I basically move everything out of one spot ...
