Lets see, where do I start? A lot has changed since I was last on here. I cannot remember the last time I was on here, and I have not looked. Since I last was on, we sold our home, moved to another one and in some ways I think it will be be...

I really enjoy woodworking, I find it relaxing.
I started when I was about 18 then and stared by making my mother a China Hutch for her good dishes. I actually conned her into letting me take woodshop in high school my senior year.
After that, I had not done any woodworking of any amount since, until I started a project to build my mother-in-law a cuttung board. She loved it.
I also recently finished a sign for my neighbors daughter who wanted a sign for her yard - an apple, so I made up a design in my head and worked on it -- she loved it.
Now, I am cleaning up my garage, so I can build a new workbench that will have storage for tools, etc....
I also have other projects to start -- I have been asked by my sister-in-law to make a jewery box for my mother-in-law.
I also have been asked by mother-in-law to build an nightstand for my father-in-law that is specificly made for his CPAP machine. I have those ideas in my head.
I also have a friend at Church that wants me to build him a gun cabinet - fro 15 guns and 6 revolvers.
I also have the ambition that I will build new cabinets for the kitchen and mathing ones for the bathrooms and other cabinets in the house. Also, for the house, and matching everthing else will be a book case and entertainment center.
Am I nuts yet??

As I think I have mentioned in previous posts, my workbench is on hold until I get another project completed – since I have not worked in the shop for a month, I think it will take a while. Anyway, I am thinking about my workbench. It wi...
