I've always been doing something with wood but in 1996 I had to retire from a job due to Multiple Sclerosis. After driving my wife and three kids nuts, I needed to get a hobby - and one that I could spend some time with. One thing let to another and now I've got most of the basement. The MS makes me a slow woodworker, not enough good days, but I sure do enjoy it. A series of stupid decisions cost me 2/3 of a finger and I am no longer allowed to have a jointer. That has made me a hand plane nut. My shop includes a Delta 5 hp cabinet saw, Laguna 18" band saw, Delta drill press, Laguna 18/47 lathe, Oneida dust collector, DeWalt scroll saw and a fabulous Roubo style bench. I have a wide assortment of mostly Lie-Nielsen hand panes. Lots of great tool/toys, thanks to my wife!

I seem to be falling deeper and deeper down the hand tool rabbit hole. Somewhere near the bottom of that hole, a guy orders a half set of hollows and rounds from Matt Bickford and waits about 18 months to open the box. They sure are packed...
Cherry and walnut for 40 cents a board foot! What a deal. My Dad lives on a nice 7 acre patch of woods that has been hit with several episodes of damaging winds. The end result was lots of trees down and some usable for lumber, not firewood. H...
