For some time now I have thought about making myself a steady rest….. So, today I did just that. Plans for these type of rest are abundant on the inter-web. I read a couple of construction articles, then went to the shop to see what I ended ...

I am really a novice to woodworking, although I have been at it all my life. I got started, like a lot of you as a child. I followed my Dad around his shop and was aloud to make toothpicks out of some of his stock.
Later in life, I got very involved with model airplanes. I have always had a love for aviation. I was a private pilot before marriage and kids took the flying funding away. Building giant scale radio control airplanes was a great and rewarding hobby. It also taught me a lot about joining wood.
Now I am retired. My dad passed from this world a few years ago and I inherited his power tools. With a new wealth of machines to try out, I found myself building toys. I just love my new found hobby. Although I will build many other projects (my wife has a long list)... It's the toys that I love the most.
I am the ToyGuy, if anyone might be interested in this aspect of woodworking, just drop me a line. I love to talk toys.

One Step Closer For some time now I have been drawn towards the dark side of wood work. Like a number of individuals, that twirling of wood has created some kind of vortex that is sucking me right in. You might say I have seen a light, and I am m...
Taken from another web site: I find this quite fitting for today, remembrance day : Quote: On November 11, 1999 Terry Kelly was in a drug store in Dartmouth, Nova Scotia. At 10:55 AM an announcement came over the store’s PA asking customers ...
I came upon these little videos and was truly amazed. The engineering and craftsmanship that went into this project is just unbelievable. I thought I would share it with the lumberjocks community where I know it could be appreciated. ENJOY !
First I must apologize for taking so much time between bogs. It seems that shop time has been very difficult to arrange as of late. What with Christmas, time out to build a 2×4 bi-plane, try a band saw box, (both for the LJ winter contest) a ...
