I like to do everything.
No, really, everything.
I've been hoping to be an artist when I grow up and am still working on it. I currently have as my medium WOOD.
I'm also a photographer, Ex-techno-geek, industrial control panel builder, amateur plumber, home maintenance tech, and other things I can't remember. (Give me a break, I'm OLD)
Other media in which I work in these days is digital art, photo restoration, drawings, animations and videos.
See, I told you, I like to do everything.

I got this chair from a client who said it’s been in his attic for as long as he can remember. A couple of weeks ago I posted a question about what wood species it might be. The majority thought it might be mahogany.So, now I wonder about th...
Using the traditional angle checking tools, such as drafting triangles and squares, still is a good place to start when building tablesaw sleds, especially miter sleds. I don’t trust miter guages to stay on angle throughout a whole job. A pi...
Having a good workbench is a luxury beyond hope for my shop. It’s a 20×28 floorplan, but its full of machines and I have to garage our car every night. What to do? I needed something strong and stable, good and flat, but something...
