I'm 51 and semi-retired and somewhat disabled. I had brain surgery back in 2001 and I've never quite recovered. I've made a start at woodworking as a method of rehabbing myself and getting back to doing more again. It's very slow at times, but I'm making progress, so I'll definitely keep going.
I grew up in my grandfather's lumberyard and have loved wood all my life. I've done some furniture and cabinet work, mostly working for others over the years, but I've never had a place to really "setup shop" for myself. This year I finally got the shop setup and am finally starting to do some basic woodworking.
I plan to work mostly on smaller scale projects like wooden scale models, jewelry boxes, cutting boards, etc. I will probably also build in more cabinets and workspaces as I go in the shop.

I’ve been working on several projects simultaneously. Finally hitting completion on a few and thought I’d post them. First off is finally getting the lumber pile sorted, so that I can tell if I have a piece that will work or not. I ...
Finally finished my drill press table. Took me just a few hours to do most of it, but spent the last 3 hours working on the crank extension. After two trips to town I finally got it right! It’s rock solid and the new hold down clamps are ...
Next on my to-do list of shop improvements is my drill press table for my Craftsman 2/3HP drill press. I’m drilling all kinds of stuff and also using a wheel cutter to make wheels for my toys and models and the C-clamps I’ve been using...
Ok..so the previous blog post shows my lathe tools and grinder setup, but I finally got the lathe out of the box and had some fun yesterday and this morning. Here is my new HF 8×12 mini-lathe already covered in shavings! And here is...
