My experience with woodworking is mainly with house renovations and building a new house in retirement years. I seem to do fairly well building kitchen and bathroom cabinets, laying ceramic tiles /stone, plumbing, drywall, and electrical work, etc.. But I have to admit I struggled for many years to get to furniture making. I’m self-taught and use magazines and the Internet to learn techniques and solve most woodworking problems. I’m a power tool woodworker; have yet to learn how to use a wood plane.
My 300 sq. ft. shop is in the basement of our new house. I have basic tools such as a Delta Contractor’s Saw, a small band saw, drill press, work bench, spray paint equipment and a load of portable power tools. I hope to buy a planer and a jointer in the future. I recently installed a dust collection system after my shop vac bit the dust.
I’m presently building consoles for each side of the fireplace. I will post pics of my projects and small shop soon.

Hi folks. After some design changes and fine-tuning the drum sander is finally completed. Here’s a point by point description covering some of the steps I feel important to take on this project. Pictures should help where I’m not so clear. I will ...
This is my first blog and I hope it will go over well. This sander was inspired by models on the Internet but mostly by Blake: http://lumberjocks.com/projects/7641 and by Bob: http://lumberjocks.com/Bob3418/blog. I would like to thank them both...
