I took 2 semesters of woodshop in high school and loved it! I am so thankful for Mr O'Neal teaching me the basics of safety and woodworking.
I got into woodworking by way of building RC model airplanes. I have been expanding my tools and equipment as I continue to work on projects.
In 2010, I would like to experiment with bent wood lamination, building a vacuum press, and possibly an acoustic guitar.
** UPDATE 5/25/12 ** So I did some bent wood lamination as part of the crib project. I do have a vacuum press and I enjoy veneering. I still have not attempted an acoustic guitar, although I am the middle of an electric guitar build. I am much closer to my dream project which is a grandfather clock (I have the clock hardware and components).

So I know I need to work out the sliding mechanism. 3 goals here: 1. Make sure the components fit into the space I’m allocating for it.2. Ensure all the pieces work and it is easy to slide up and down.3. Make sure the ironing board is le...
"Fold up" ironing board (reverse engineering) #1: measuring the model and planning any modifications
So as part of a Murphy bed build, I wanted to incorporate a fold up (or hide away) ironing board. I have seen these at Lowes and Home Deport starting off about $168. They don’t look that hard to build and I sure think I could save some mone...
