    My first year making Christmas gifts

    I finally had the confidence/skill/shop space/time to build gifts for my family this year, so i stuck with the classics (sorry for the crappy cell phone pics): This was my first attempt at a cutting board and a small box, and i must say i was quite happy with the results.

    First Scrolling projects in more than a year

    Since my wreck, last year, I've struggled tremendously with using my hand. Alas, I've started to take an "oh screw it and just do it" attitude. Unfortunately, this does involve a good deal of pain during the blade changing process. :wmad: I need to figure out a way to modify the process on my...

    That time of year

    My wife and I went to Cana Virginia for an annual apple and other produce buying trip. Well seems spider season is in full swing.

    1st Project of Year: New Style Workbench

    As I do every year around this time, when it's too cold to spend any length of time in shop, I take an inventory of tools that did not make the grade (just didn't get enough use out of). They get Craiglisted (receipts gladly given :gar-Bi). Then use money to get new :tool:'s One item not...

    100 Year Old GLOAT!

    I went to Charlie's house this weekend. He had hauled this old lathe that he used to work with up from his basement by himself. He gave it to me and refused to take any money for it. I am going to donate some money to NCWoodworker instead! This is my first lathe and I am really excited...
