  About Me

  • 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    I have mainly underpowered, outdated, and inaccurate benchtop tools, mostly Craftsman.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.
    Biography
    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.
    Location
    Louisville, KY
    Interests
    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.
