No time for woodworking, but it didn't stop me from getting the tools. Well, occasionally I do get to play. With a family & kids, the hobby is definitely on a low budget. I do enjoy digging up a bargain now and then.

I enjoy refurbishing old hand tools. I have turned socket and tang handles with or without leather washers. I enjoy giving old rusty planes, draw knives a second life. Work on a few hand braces and egg beaters. Most of all, I enjoy reading about woodworking and dream about the projects that I can make.

Not much accomplishments yet. So far my projects are clipboards, bottle stoppers, wooden swords, garden arbor, bench swing, chess boards and archery bow. It is pretty short. Obviously, I like to expand on the list. This site does get me a lot of inspiration.
