Location: Broken Arrow Ok.

65 years old, love to play with wood. Not an expert by any means but love to make saw dust. Making cradles for each of my 7 daughters and love to make toys for my 8 grandkids. I like turning pens and trying to work on larger bowels a vases but not too good at that yet. I also pick up old ShopSmith ER's and rebuild them for relaxation. Cheaper than 50's & 60's cars. I have a small collection of old woodworking planes that I am learning about and adding to.
Love to camp and work on my Koa pond.

-- Bill, Broken Arrow OK.

Welcome. You will have to post some photos of your Shopsmith Restorations. Guessing there would be some interest here.

Welcome to Lumberjocks. The projects are an inspiration, the information is priceless and the people are supportive. The only problem is, the site can get addictive.

God Bless
