I am an engineer by trade and relatively new at woodworking. I enjoy making pieces from repurposed wood and also enjoy making more traditional pieces. I have a 16'x24' dedicated shop with a table saw, miter saw, bandsaw, jointer, thickness planer, drill press, sanders, and dust collection. All of my power tools and benches are mobile, making reconfiguration and cleaning very easy.
I contracted out the construction of the structure of my shop but did all the finish work: electrical, insulation, wall coverings, and heating/cooling.

Since I needed this nightstand to match our existing bedroom furniture I decided to mix the stain myself. I was not satisfied with the results using off-the-shelf oil-based stains so I decided to try my hand at using dye stains. I ordered some T...
I was going to use dovetails or boxjoints for the drawers but I decided to go simple. After all I have cabinet drawers constructed with less integrity that have been abused for more than 20 years. I had some poplar that needed using so I glued...
