  About Me

  • My Shop
    Some detailed information about my workshop.
    Power Tools
    For stationary tools I have the Bosch 10" Glide saw and a Craftsman 10" table saw, 12" drill press, 6" rabbiting joiner, 12" thickness planer, 14" and 10" band saws, scroll saw, 4" belt/6" disk sander, 1" belt sander, 40" lathe, mini lathe, air compressor, 1-1/2 HP dust collector, 3/4 HP dust collector, 2 shop air cleaners and 4 shop vacs. Also a CompuCarve machine.

    PC 7518 and a 7538, 2 Bosch 1617's, 2 Bosch MRC23EVSK, Bosch 1601, Bosch 1613EVS, Bosch 1617EVS, Festool OF2200, Makita RP2301FC, Triton TRA001, Hitachi M12VE, DeWalt 625, Trend T4, Bosch Colt, Rockwell and Ryobi trim routers, 5 router tables, biscuit joiner, wide assortment of drills, sanders and saws. Other routers come and go after I learn about them
    My Shop
    My garage is my shop, 24' x 22'. It is very crowded since in addition to my woodworking tools I have my industrial maintenance tools: 4 roller cabinets, smoke wrench with industrial gas bottles, arc welder, grinders and a hardware shop of supplies.
  • Woodworker Information
    A few details about myself.
    Biography
    I built my first router table from the plans in ShopNotes #1 which is the same table you can see on the PBS show "Woodsmith Shop." Rick converted me to the Router Workshop table and I believe it is the finest, most efficient design you can use. I have owned and used most brands of routers.
    Location
    Detroit, Michigan
    Interests
    Fishing, hunting, photography, PC's, racing, cooking & baking... the list goes on.
    Favorite Router
    The Bosch 1617 is my favorite with the MR23 a close second. I buy different routers to evaluate them and then pass them on for others to use. Among these are DeWalt 611, PC 690, various Ryobi and Craftsman models.
