Went to a “pre” yard sale today and picked up a few items, but this I couldn’t let pass by. It’s all there except the drive belts and should probably be cleaned and re-lubricated. It came with bits, face plate, live...

Probably not much different than you all, married my high school sweetheart 41+ years ago, raised two children, and have one grandchild (~5 yrs.). Bought my first power tool (B&D reciprocating saw) with S&H Greenstamps in 1970 to cut up some pine boards for kitchen shelves. I've rendered perfectly good lumber into sawdust ever since. Over the past 40+ years I've built case goods for the home, furniture for the patio, baby furniture, and currently looking into utilizing scraps to build band saw boxes. My favorite tool is an old Shop Smith (Model 10-ER built in 1958) that I purchased from an old family friend about 30 years back and still gives good service. My "shop" is a one-car garage so all my stationary tools are on casters so that I can move outside when the weather permits.
I guess that is enough for now. I'll update with project pictures at a later date, and I am looking forward to meeting with many of you in the very near future.
P.S. I still use the B&D reciprocating saw.

I have a friend who spends countless hours and miles looking in old barns chasing down old Volkswagens and Porsches and sometimes comes upon old hand tools that are given to him. He brings me the woodworking tools and they are usually in pretty r...
A few months back, I constructed a small center finder out of scraps to mark centers on some round stock for further turning of round tenons. No big deal. However, last week the surveying firm that I work for accepted a project with a local powe...
I presented the “finished” Creche to the wife for her artistic additions. Needless to say, I wasn’t finished. It needed a back wall. OK, back to the shop. In keeping with the design criteria (leftovers and simplicity) I came ...
Things move along quickly as long as employment doesn’t interfere. Actually, I am transitioning into retirement and it is not taking much effort. As you may have noticed in the first blog, the ½” plywood base was cut with shallow 45 deg. k...
