    My Shop
    I have a small shop set up in what used to be a sun room in my house. I don't do any large woodworking projects so the size doesn't matter. I have a home built 48x24 work bench with a reinforced 3/4 inch MDF Top, bottom shelf and two large built in drawers salvaged from a bedside night stand, a router cabinet I built myself with a Woodpeckers tilt top, Woodpeckers Super Fence and Woodpeckers aluminum insert with a PC 892 router attached. A PC 4216 dovetail jig, Woodhaven 39 inch planer jig, Ridgid shop vac and a Milescraft Pantograph. Enough lumber to build a small house. I now have a Toshiba 17 inch Laptop I keep in my shop since I bought a 17 inch Apple Macbook Pro Laptop a couple months ago.
  • Woodworker Information
    A few details about myself.
    Biography
    Worked in the aircraft field for nearly 30 years as a sheet metal mechanic and inspector on everything from Piper Cubs to the Space Shuttle. That includes 5+ years as a helicopter crew chief in the Army. Did mostly short term contract work all over the world as well as 3-1/2 years in Vietnam with Lockheed Aircraft repairing crash and battle damaged aircraft. Attended Indiana University majoring in Police Administration and Forensics, but never pursued that line of work because of my preference with aircraft work and the free travel it afforded me. During my college years I owned a garage and concentrated on drag racing and building race engines for myself and others.
    Location
    San Jose, CA
    Interests
    As I am older than dirt I don't do much of anything other than watch movies in the evening and work in my shop when I feel up to it building mostly boxes and clocks. When not doing either of those I read woodworking books and spend time on my computer shopping and getting woodworking information from various sites.
    Favorite Router
    Ridgid in full size plunge and Fixed Base. DeWalt 611 Compact Router Kit.

    Porter-Cable 892 for router table use.
    Woodworking Experience (Years)
    Beginner. Now with 3 years since I filled out this info sheet but still a beginner in some areas.
    First Name
    Ken
    Country
    United States
  • Signature
    When something is advertised as being foolproof there is always a better class of fool that comes along to prove them wrong.
