I’ve always wanted to be a woodworker. Now that have the tools and the shop to do it, let’s see how I do. This blog will help me to collect my thoughts and lessons as I make saw dust. Feel free to comment! I will enjoy the feedback.
The blog also includes my various gadget, gizmo, CNC and other workshop projects.
