I was born in 1960, and hit the lovely wife jackpot 31 years ago. We have 6 kids ages 14, 16, 18, 23, 24, & 27....all still living at home. I'm currently employed as a quality technician for Johnson & Johnson's Ortho Clinical Diagnostics.
I've been woodworking since 2001. My shop is roughly 1/3 of a two car garage, and is shared by too many bicycles, sleds, scooters, outdoor toys, and garden tools, etc. It's un-insulated and difficult to work in during our long cold winters, so I tend to do mostly "cyber woodworking" during the winter months. I gained a fascination with saw blades early on in my wwing endeavors....mostly due to be really ticked off about wasting money on lousy blades, and have pursued using, collecting, and testing them as sort of a "hobby within a hobby"....to date I've probably tried in the range of 70 different 10" blades. I've also started using and learning about hand planes, and now have a modest collection of those too.
Most of my projects are furniture for around the house, along with occasional items for friends and family. I gravitate toward the Mission/Arts & Crafts style but tend to go my own way just using elements of the styles that I like. Much of my wood is salvaged or given to me. I've been fortunate to have purchased surprisingly little wood over the years. A deviation from furniture was an electric guitar in 2007 for my middle son. Since I don't play, it was the most challenging thing I've tackled to date, but was also the most rewarding. I followed it up with a tube amp to go with it, then a 2nd guitar for my oldest son in 2010.
Thanks for visiting....nice web site gang!

Forrest, Infinity, Ridge Carbide, Freud Fusion, and Tenryu Gold Medal are all great saw blades. It’s hard to go wrong with any of them if you’re willing to plunk down $70-$125. Try getting a good blade with a budget in the $10-$40 ra...
I’ve had a BORK riving knife on my Shop Fox W1677 cabinet saw since it was new in 2008, and have reviewed it and the original BORK Blade Guard (BBG) here on LJ’s. The most recent version of the BBG includes enough updates that I thoug...
Feeling a little restricted by your table saw’s small rip capacity, but don’t have the room for a 52” rip setup? If you’ve got a Biesemeyer or Biese clone style fence and a left tilt table saw, it’s very likely that ...
