Hi everyone,
A little about myself... I started woodworking about 11 years ago and now my wife can't keep me out of the shop! Absolutely love making things out of wood as do all of you I am sure.
My primary occupation is being in the Canadian Navy which I have been at since 1989. Still going strong and loving it... Nothing better than heading over seas on behalf of your country and the foreign port visits are amazing... I've seen a great deal of the world already, but still have a few more places I'd like to visit before I retire.
As for my woodworking hobby, well, I started construction on my new shop in 2005 and still have not finished up the final touches. Mostly trying to get the final cabinets built and installed. I will add some pics once I get each section completed (or each project). Hope you all enjoy the pics and please pass along any comments or suggestions as I am always open to learning new tips and tricks...
I am also into photography (though my wood project photos don't show it) and playing Ice Hockey (go Team Canada)...
Steve (AKA Wisty)

-- New Project = New Tool... it's just the way it is, don't fight it... :)

Nice shop Steve. I don’t think there’s a better spot in Canada to be than Victoria. (I did 4 years in Pat Bay back in the early 90s)
Welcome to Lumberjocks. Let’s see some lathe projects :-)

Hi Ken,
Funny thing you should mention Pat Bay… I work there right now… LOL… Have been enjoying the weather Victoria has to offer for over 20 years now and hope to stay here and finish my military career…
I’ll post some lathe projects once I have more time in the shop… The only one I have really finished was the toilet paper dispenser holder… I posted it with my vanity pics… Looking forward to trying more though.. was a lot of fun working on the lathe…
