I just received my new logo stamps and thought that I would share them with you all. They are made by Columbia marking tools or CMT right here in Michigan. These are really nice high quality stamps, the tips are hardened but the striking end is no...

hobbyist woodworker but passionate about it, mill my own lumber with a granberg mill and air dry it. new to the lathe but i am learning. with my mill i acquire a lot of lumber and of species that sometimes are not available to purchase, for me milling lumber is as much fun as working the wood. there is something very rewarding about the process of milling wood that might have become firewood or landfill and completing a project from tree to end of project. i believe that wood is a precious commodity and should not be wasted or exploited but cherished, revered, and respected, it is a beautiful gift of nature and god. i currently work in a basement shop and i love it, sure i would like to have a stand alone shop, who wouldn't, but I'm cool in the summer and warm in the winter, close to the bathroom and coffee pot, and the wife can yell at me from the top of the stairs lol. worked wood in high school and then got away from it for a few years for marriage, children, business, etc. started again about 6 years ago and realized what i was missing, guess I'm a born again woodworker lol. will try to get some pictures of my work and milling posted, without wood there is not any woodworking 1-1-14 time for a little update I guess. I have also ventured into a little metal working. I have set up one small corner of my basement shop for this and I have a metal lathe and a milling machine there. I have been making and selling high quality turning tools for wood turners. They are carbide insert and work very well. I first started making these tools for myself, then others started asking for them, and now I have fun making and selling them to others. My shop is still my happy place.

I Put a lot of work into these to get them the way I like them. I don’t like anything to touch the carbide cutters edge so it cant be chipped. Like all my tools I hand fit each cutter and make sure it is right to me, I am very particular abo...
Heres some pics of the mid size round tool that I make. Same as the others, 3/8 square 1045 steel bar stock and black oxide coated to protect it and just because I think it looks cool. How they look after machining the pockets and grinding the ...
This is a mid size roughing tool that I make that is great for mini/midi lathes. The pen, call, stopper, small bowl and lidded box folks really like this tool. It is made from 3/8” cold rolled 1045 steel and black oxide coated as all my tool...
This is my absolute favorite tool of the carbide insert tools that I make, next to the hollower. This tool just flat out works! It actually makes roughing fun, you do not have to concentrate on riding a bevel or have any fear of catches. Just keep...
