I am just a hobbyist, but I truly enjoy woodworking. I have mostly worked on cabinetry (hutches, built in bookshelves, etc), but I am starting to gain an interest in smaller projects.

Well, it has taken me a while to finish this project. My shop is in the garage, which sits right underneath my son’s bedroom. Since he goes to bed at about 7:45, I usually get about an hour a day in the shop at most. But I finally got it a...
This really isn’t a project. I mentioned in a post how I store my clamps, and someone requested a picture. Someone gave me a wire rack on wheels a couple of years ago, and I have used it to store parts for the projects I am working on, as...
Well, I finally got back into the shop today. Yesterday was spent visiting Alcatraz, Pier 39 and Fisherman’s Wharf with my 8-year old, my wife and a bunch of kids and parents from my son’s scouting group. It was fun, but too much wa...
