Here’s a fun project; a storage container for my wife turned on the lathe. I don’t have good hollowing tools, so digging out chips from wood deeper than 2” forces me to use my chisels in an unsupported way. That results in un...

I'm a 40-something year old Retired Nurse...living way out in the mountains. I've always loved nature, and I really love trees! I love them for their colorful display in the fall...I love their protection from wind and rains...and I love the way they smell as they come out of the sawmill!
I started knapping flint into knife blades about 7 years ago, and it was the making of the wooden knife handles that drew me to woodworking.
Now, I'm addicted to the sawdust! I love to carve spoons and bowls, shape wooden centers for my pine needle baskets, hand mill arrow shafts from lumber and saplings, and still shape knife handles for my flint blades. Recently, I've added some Grizzly power tools to the shop, and hope to learn joinery for simple boxes, display cases, who knows what's next, right? You LJ's have an infectious way of sharing knowledge...I wanna try all the projects you share!!! Keep it up, and I'll try to catch up as fast as I can...

Hello everyone, I cannot believe it’s been over 5 weeks since the last update, but you know how life goes… Sadly, the major event the past month for us was watching the passing of one of our elderly cats, named Leo. He was 18...
Hi everyone, Spring has suddenly arrived to our place, in fact we’ve seen daily highs over 80 degrees regularly the past week or so! Since we live in a very fertile floodplain, a small amount of sunshine means the grass is already growing ou...
