- My Shop
Some detailed information about my workshop.
- Power Tools
- I have mainly underpowered, outdated, and inaccurate benchtop tools, mostly Craftsman. Also a full size table saw and floor model drill press. Guess what brand. I inherited most of it from my Dad. He was a fan of Craftsman back when they made better tools.
- My Shop
- My shop, if you'll forgive the overstatement, is in part of my detached garage. The other 2/3 of the garage is full of furniture to be refinished, and a lot of other things that she may need some day. Being detached, it's not heated and I'm mainly out there in warm weather.
- Woodworker Information
A few details about myself.
- Not much to tell here. I grew up on a farm and went to work in a factory as soon as I was old enough. I spent 40 years there, with a lot of wishful thinking about going whole hog into woodworking when I would be able to retire. It hasn't worked out that way so far, but I'm getting a little better as time goes on.
- Louisville, KY
- My interests are woodworking (obviously), repairing and tweaking computers, and playing guitar and chess. I've been helping my son renovate his old house for a couple of years now. I did some homebuilding for a couple of years after I retired and liked it. But when the housing bubble burst, I could see that I was going to get stuck with unsold houses if I didn't get out quick, so that's what I did.
- Favorite Router
- Anything better than what I have.
- Woodworking Experience (Years)
- First Name
- United States
- It seems I never finish what I
