I am a hobbyist woodworker as an escape from the ephemeral world of software development. And the solitude of the basement shop also serves as an escape from the far less ephemeral world of two rambunctious sons.
My main interest is in furniture, but in practice, I make what furniture I can between home improvement and repair projects. Most of what I make is for myself, my family and a few friends. Although, thoughts of selling a few pieces here and there to get the next big tool are always with me.
My particular interest is on period furniture covers many eras from the late Medieval period forward to the Arts & Crafts period. When I am not in the shop, I am probably reading and pouring over books and illustrations planning my next project.

I have what’s probably a typical shop for the hobbyist furniture maker: a largish room in the unfinished half of a basement of a middling sized house. It’s not huge, but not really tight either. Like everyone in this position, space ...
I have had several blogs before and they all get neglected over time. Will this one be different? Probably not. But we will see. I seemed to have sustained my commitment to regular shop time through most of a year and the output of my shop sho...
