Wouldn’t it be great if you could take a small tabletop saw or midsize contractor saw to a jobsite and have a full sized outfeed table similar to a production shop? The kind of outfeed that would breakdown and set up quickly and store out of...

Location: Torrance, CA. When not lost in a sequoia forest!
I am a Glazier by trade. I just started a business from the ground up with no resources, or help from anyone else. If I knew what I was getting into before I started my own business I would have gave it a few more thoughts.....
I enjoy photography, surfing, astronomy, writing songs, poems and short stories. Exploring new places, golf, weightlifting, Building cars that get you in trouble, Jeeps, rock climbing, all high intensity rush/extreme sports. Woodworking or crafting anything with my hands has always been in my blood. I've been accused of misplacing many of my late fathers tools when I was a kid! :^)
I am into art of all kinds. I like to create things. I have escaped the wrath of marriage up to now, I'll be 41 on July 1st 2008
I am a tool freak! I buy tools I don't even need sometimes cuz they just look cool!
I have a strange fascination with Giant Sequoia trees. Of the 67 recognized Sequoia groves I've been to 39 of them. Of the top forty biggest trees in the world I've visited 32 of them at least once. The Giant Sequoia is probably one of the few woods that is basically worthless to the woodworker.
My freinds tell me I have lived a thousand lives and my life is overflowing but I still can't believe them. I don't drink or do drugs - not looking forward to that nightmare again anytime soon. I buy books like I buy tools! My favorite days are rainy days and something interesting to read!
I am sure I've forgot quite a bit about myself, as you can see I get around when I am not completely bored out of my mind.... nothing, absolutely nothing will ever be good enough - I can always do it better!

The frame is easy to make out of pine, fir or any soft wood. We want to make it look precision yet old at the same time. The hardest part is convincing the sun to age your project for you 2000 years in about a few days time. The sun owed me for a ...
