Recently retired after 38 years in retail management. The joke at our house is we don't do spring cleaning we just move--16 different moves over the years. I picked up the love of workworking from my father who has patiently answered all my questions over the years. We designed the house that we live in (last move honest!) and built a separate woodworking shop for me to work in and a stained glass studio for my wife to work in. I have worked on many projects over the years and am looking forward to making the sawdust fly in my retirement years.

I scored a very large piece of ash from a guy who runs a portable saw mill. This piece measures out at 23” across and almost 48” high and is 3” thick. There are a couple of checks in the piece and by working around them I will ...
The finished Mexican pot is the first of several projects that will be turned from the large piece of sugar maple featured in big stuff turning #1. There are five coats of finish on this piece. The only thing left to do is to buff it out with th...
