I am 68 years old and have been woodworking 58 of those years. My wife and I have a business called Odenheimers' Dust'n Lint. So named for the by products of what we produce, "Fine Woodworking and Stitchery". I specialize in fancy joinery in my boxes, jewelry boxes, bowls, and pens. My wife makes traditional quilts with nontraditional colors.
I was a cable splicer for the telephone company (ma bell) for a little more than thirty years. Then 12 years ago they made me an offer I couldn't refuse. So while thinning the herd, they made it possible for me to pursue my dream. That's when Dust'n Lint was born. My wife Sue and I have really had some fun and met some great people along the way. We will never get rich, but it does pay for itself.
Not too long ago I was given quite an honor by being chosen to be in the gallery of the INCRA site. It's a great jig and a great gallery. You can see what the possiblities are with their jigs. http://incra.com
I started a blog of funny videos and photos http://woodstermangotwood.blogspot.com/

I thought this topic was exhausted many moons ago. As a “pro”, little things pop up, that need our attention from time to time. Now that my life is, for the most part, mine again, I have time to conclude our little melodrama. We left off with me a...
Hi …. O, an “artist’s” story unfolds …....... Hell done broke loose at North Tahoe Arts. Remember, I told you about that place earlier. It is a non-profit artists association, I’m afraid, run by artists. If you put 20 of them in one...
I forgot to bring you all up to date. How you get noticed by Google and Yahoo is called “meta names”. These names are embedded in code in your web site on each page. Google and Yahoo! use crawlers to find and read these meta “tag...
This topic was a request by daltxguy, and it will probably disappoint him. We left off with the customer the last time around. Well this is sort of related. It’s just a different way to go find that allusive person. Ah yes, the all powerful “web s...
