Location: North Idaho
I am a 71 year old retired Ironworker. In 2003 my wife and I moved from Texas to the Northern regions of the Idaho panhandle. We bought 11 wooded acres, cleared enough trees for our home site, then set about building it.
For the first time I have a dedicated (heated) shop in which to practice and hone my rudimentary woodworking skills. Although I have built high rises, banks, hospitals, bridges, etc. in my career I never considered myself a woodworker.
I am still in the process of gathering tools which I find in garage sales, Craigs list, Ebay, or thrift stores. But what I really enjoy is the challenge of making tools rather than buying them. I have made a 14" bandsaw, 23" thickness (drum) sander, and a pantorouter so far. (See my LJ projects)
My projects take forever because if I see the need for a tool or a jig that I don't have I will stop and make it.
I am glad to be a part of the Lumberjock community. You guys inspire me with your talent.

This rocker is a James Cole creation. He has been good enough to share his plans, for free, with all who would like to build this beauty. You can find them here The first thing I did was to save his plan pages using the”save image as...
The Head Stock on this particular lathe is designed to rotate at varying degrees up to 180 degrees. One of the issues fellow Lumberjock William, A.K.A greasemonkeyredneck pointed out to me was keeping the head and tail stock in alignment. This i...
Fellow Lumberjock Jim Jakosh asked some valid questions concerning my DIY air filter. He asked about the clearance when turning a large bowl with the filter in place. So, this morning I measured the clearances, if any, between the end of the fil...
