  • Woodworker Information
    A few details about myself.
    Biography
    in 1976 I purchased a bicycle store, ran it for 36 years and in 2012 I turned the business over to my daughter. About the same time my daughter and son-in-law purchased a condemned 4500 square foot fraternity house and an 1800 square foot carriage house. I use the basement of the big house for my workshop. Having the space, and having the need for restoration has given me something positive to do in my retirement.
    Location
    Central Michigan area, an hour north of lansing.
    Interests
    My life-long hobby, which most of my vacations center around, is canoeing. To escape the cold my wife and I spend the month of January paddling Everglades National park where, unlike others vacationing in Florida, we rarely see anyone but a few committed fisherman. Summer vacations are centered around the great lakes.

    My newest hobby is sewing. I know, I use to think sewing was for sissies too, but I found out that you can get manly sewing machines that sew through just about anything. Don't make cloths, but just about anything else is fair game if I can figure out how to make it.
    Favorite Router
    Favorite Router is the one I have mounted to my table with the Incra Fence and Master Lift II, it happens to be a Porter Cable 7518. I also have two Porter Cable 690's and an 890 on a second router table with a Rockler lift. Porter Cable is compatible with every aftermarket router accessory made. I also have an old Jessem/Jet Exacta router lift with a Bosch 1617 on a table saw extension. The old Bosch has been rebuilt, but still struggles. Of course one needs a trim router, so I have a Ridgid which works well. I have a Royobi 1 3/4 hp router and a Menard's Master Craft router package, which works really well, but it's base is incompatible with everything - I wonder why they do that?
    Woodworking Experience (Years)
    35 years of frustration, 5 years seriously.
