I've been interested in working with wood since I was just a pup. But it wasnt till the past few years that I was able to actually able to set up a REAL shop and start building things. I usually tell people I consider myself to be a "WoodButcher" 'cause I can turn 100bucks worth of oak and maple into sawdust with the best of 'em :-)
The project I'm most proud of is the new dining room table I built for my wife last year. I was given some 100+ year-old barn wood (oak) and I used maple between the boards for a stripe effect. Hand rubbed it with about 15 coats of Tung oil and (I think) it came out pretty nice.

I generally use pencils, but last year a co-worker came to me and said “I know you like to build things in your wood shop, but have you ever done any working with metal?” He then showed me a scribe someone had given him to use in HIS s...
Someone started a thread the other day talking about how at times he was jealous of some of the other work shops shown here on LJs. The ensuing posts quickly brought to bear that it aint the size or how much big expensive fancy equipment you may h...
