Computer nerd, woodworker, and woodworking instructor. I also enjoy Hang Gliding, Electronics, and have a small Metal Lathe, and now a CNC Micro Mill.
Having been laid off in Feb. 2011, I've become a starving artist, focusing on 3D woodworking. I now share a studio at a local Gallery with 4 other artists.
I take commissions for various woodworking and SketchUp Design.
-- Backer boards, stop blocks, build oversized, and never buy a hand plane--

A fellow LJ member(Belg1960) was asking about designing an Octagon Birdhouse a while back. He recently contacted me and asked if I would show him how I would do it in SketchUp. I thought I would make this public for all to see. The method that Jim...
Task at hand: Make a top for this cover using thin Luan. I thought finger joints would work to keep it sturdy, and to not require cleats on the inside. BTW, this is a cover for my CNC controller so looks is not a priority to me on this one. Th...
