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!

Well, I live at the epicenter of the flood in PA. My little town was unaccessable from all directions yesterday but we can get around now. My current status is about an inch of water made it into the basement and ruined the carpet. No other rea...
I have officially made a clock! It ticks, it tocks, it dings and dongs. I can hear the chimes ringing as I write this update for you. Here’s what I’ve done to be able to call this an actual clock. I’ve added a support to th...
I am up to the nerve wracking part of this build. I need to put some dados into the sides of the clock, but since both the sides and front/back are angled, the dados need to be angled. I’ve been thinking about how to do this since I starte...
Now that the front and back have been assembled, I’m on to making the sides and the shelves that will sit in dados cut into the sides. Today’s blog is getting thoses sides made and ready for the dado process. That means basic milling...
