Location: Springfield, Mass

I have been accumulating tools for a few years now, have added a couple rooms to the house and a a couple of building to the cottage. I want to try some other styles of woodworking, perhaps cabinets, boxes, furniture etc

Thanks, everybody

I plan to lurk a while and look. I am too busy with remodeling house to do much serious work, but do have a jig that I use that I might try to post

SWMBO is a bit distressed by the kitchen and dining room being under remodel for a LONG time, so I suspect I might be best off if I finish some of that first :-/ basically at this point need to finish 3 windows that I replaced and a pass through


... some mornings I wake up grumpy, but most of the time I just let her sleep!

Welcome to Lumberjocks. The projects are an inspiration, the information is priceless and the people are supportive. The only problem is, the site can get addictive.

God Bless
