Location: Norwood, Massachusetts

Life long wood hacker, gives me a chance to vent some creativity. Have assembled a fair basement workshop for an amateur, and in the past year have raised my game on sharpening and learning to use better tools. This Chrismas Santa sent a Rikon 2hp dust collection system so I may actually live long enough to finish some of my project plans..

Upgraded to Powermatic Artisan table saw this year and today I plan to connect some dust collection around it.

So shop consists of a jointer, lathe, Powermatic Artisan table saw, Delta bench top planer, drill press, and 2 band saws a Ridgid 14" and a Ryobi 8" for small stuff, 2,3,4, 4.25,4.5, 5, 5.5, 6, 7 and 8 Bailey hand planes, A 3-4-5-6-and 7 Bedrock flat top set, router plane, Rabbit planes and 30 assorted specialty planes, bench sander, bench jig saw, many hand saws, refurbed chisel sets 1/8 - 2" Craftsman 12 inch Lathe and 4" Craftsman jointer.

My real job has been in healthcare for the past 20 years, but my heart is in my workshop. I have built for gifts or sold;
5 cradles, one out of purple heart
two beds
6 desks
5 jewelry boxes (marquetry)
2 Rocking horses
2 wine racks

In my home I have built for our own use
1 - 7' tall hutch (maple trim and birch ply frame)
2 - end tables and one under TV entertainment center both out of 125 year old spruce
and my pride and joy a self designed cherry rocking chair made from 25 year dry cherry I cut with my father 30 years ago.
Bedroom set, desk, chest, wall unit, full size bed frame
Kitchen center island with 4 cabinets and faux granite top
16x22 deck out back
and countless other projects when asked for friends and family..
