  About Me

  • My Shop
    Some detailed information about my workshop.
    Power Tools
    Al the usual; Table saw, joiner, planer, lathe, band saw floor model, oscillating spindle sander, combination rotary and belt sander, 12" miter saw, floor model drill press, dust collector,and many power and manual hand tools from orbital sanders to chisels and Japanese hand saws. And now a Busy Bee Craftex mortising machine, only $199. Recently added a ceiling air cleaner from General International.
    My Shop
    My shop is an attached garage 18.5 x 24ft with ceilings about 8.5ft. I just completed building my Home Depot tool shed Kit, a 10 x 10 space that will help unclutter the garage. When all is moved into it, I'll have a better idea of how to set up my shop to get the best flow for woodworking. I hope to have it set up by late July to early August. We moved here June 14th and this is our 5th home. I promised my wife this is the last.
  • Woodworker Information
    A few details about myself.
    Biography
    Hello everyone,
    I have been working with wood for over 25 years now. In the 90's I operated a renovation co and I have developed an interest in the last 10 years in fine furniture building and crafting. At age 50 I decided that I wanted some formal training and enrolled at Merlin fine woodworking school. With the tools I already had and the knowledge from the courses I feel I can tackle most woodworking challenges. I took the courses because I felt that Norm Abram was a great influence but I wanted to see what else was out there. Since Merlin Fine Woodworking school closed I have now opened Woodwork King school and I am giving lessons in my shop and so far so good, I have given 3 sessions of beginner and intermediate classes.
    Location
    St Clet west of Montreal
    Interests
    I also enjoy classic rock and muscle cars. I sold my 57 Chevy 3 years ago and I'm starting to look for another project. I am also a Mr. Fix it kind of guy. I can and have done most repairs in my homes over the years and will attempt anything except connecting a circuit to a breaker box because of insurance restrictions.
    Favorite Router
    My favorite router is my $99 3-1/2 HP King plunge router. At that price it's hard to beat. I will be mounting it in a router table one of these days, I 've had the New Yankee Workshop plans for a couple of years now and I will find the time to build it.I also have a Black & Decker plunge router and a mini router that is part of my rotary tool kit.
