    Some detailed information about my workshop.

  • Woodworker Information
    A few details about myself.
    Biography
    I am a retired carpenter that set up a wood shop to while away the time doing what I enjoy doing the most, making things out of wood. I don't do turning, scrollsawing, veneering,steam bending or any kind of wood bending,including bending over very well, to pick up all the stuff I drop on the floor.

    I like routing and have several routers and I am a router bit junky. I am scared to death of routers, that is why I am very careful using them,I love what they can do.

    I am also on the steering committee for our local woodworking group, the North West Woodworkers Association.
    Location
    Auburn, Washington
    Interests
    Woodworking and salmon fishing in Puget Sound.
    Favorite Router
    PC 3hp on router table, Skil 1 hp. hand held fixed base and plunge, pc trim router, Trend plunge router, Dremel plunge router, Makita trim router,Bosch 1617 in second MCLS sliding router table. Muscle chucks on router tables,a bosch 1617 spare under the bench.
