My love for woodworking began in high school which had a well equipped industrial arts classroom and offered courses in architectural and mechanical drawing, woodworking and woodturning. After taking every course offered, I tried to repeat them but wasn't allowed. I did apartment woodworking for a number of years, building simple shelves, DVD racks, and step stools. After buying a house with a separate shop building I finally purchased a table saw and began making furniture for the house. These days I make whatever suits my fancy from shop layout tools, boxes, turned projects and more.

King Seeley never bothered to clean up the parts after casting, that was left to future owners and most of them didn’t. My lathe was around for 54 years and most surfaces were rough as a cob when I brought it home. Here I’m cleaning up...
Old video, only 480p, that I dug up to play around with Cyberlink Power Director 12. Chips from the square cutter tend to fly straight back at your fingers and if the wood is just the right hardness, will give you a thousand little paper cuts a...
Part of a current project that turned out better than expected. Months back I took some padauk scraps and soaked them in lacquer thinner to make a dye, this is the first time I’ve used it. This picture didn’t turn out well but the colo...
