Welcome to LumberJocks. I used to live in Flemington until 3 years ago. I retired and moved to Delaware. It’s tough to retire and pay NJ taxes.

Welcome to Lumberjocks Bob. Thank you for the nice comments on the quilt rack. As far as how long it took me. I don’t know. I worked on it between other items I had to get done. I get all of my white oak rough, bt I had these boards already milled. I would say I had a couple of good days in it other than finishing. Great project to do! Welcome again!

The refinishing took @ 4-5 hrs building the china cabinet to 20ish hrs. I know that I could build it more like 15 or so now but isn’t that the way it always goes :-) The thing that helped me the most was a full sized template of the foot print of the cabinet this let me work out all the mearments and jointery before hand. Thanks for looking. love your work Jasen

Well, another year has rolled by. It must have been a really fun year because it seems like yesterday when I congratulated you on being a LJ for 2 years. Congratulations on your 3rd anniversary at Lumber Jocks. Thanks for helping make LJ a great place to visit and happy anniversary!

you commented on my workshop. That radial arm is an older craftsman 12” industrial model. It makes a lot of cuts that a 10” saw won’t do. Plus I can use a dado blade on one saw and still be able to cut on the other.

I tried sending you a pm, but I’m a newly registered member and cannot yet send out pm’s. Shoot me an email at about the lathe.

I’m down in Philadelphia and would be willing to make the drive up for the lathe.
