I’m here for the first time today. I make very few projects from wood. I love wood but I am a tool maker and love that more. I quite often biuld tools out of what other people call junk. My son does woodwork for a living so I often make tools for our common shop. If I can get a picture in here I will show you a resaw that I biult from an old meat saw that I bought for scrap price at my local scrap iron yard. I do love all the creativity that I see on this site. Well I have nt figured out how to put a picture out of my picture files in But I will later.

Great to have a tool man on this site. I’m usually trying to find tooling to make my tools work better. Unfortunatelly I’ve done only a little metal work.
