Default Novice woodworker....

I have played around with wood since the mid 70's, time permitting. Another words, I am getting upwards in age or closer to the end than the beginning.

I have one half of my garage devoted to my woodworking and the other half to my wife's dusty auto while my jeep resides outside.

My equipment consists of a Shopsmith with all the goodies, a woodrat mounted on a router table, Akeda 16 that is updated that resides on another router table, a dust collector and various hand tools.

Early on, I was a radio man on a B-29 chasing typhoons in the Pacific ocean area then became an air traffic controller and retired from that in Texas.

And that is who I am. So, hello folks!

Welcome to the forum. Glad to have another woodworking on the web. I too have the Shopsmith and the Akeda 16 for variable space dovetails. A note: when I use the Akeda for dovetails I set up 3-routers. One for cutting the tails, one for cutting the pins and one with an undersized bit (3/16" spiral) and the same size guide bushing to hog out the waste. All are plunge routers but the last one for hogging out the waste it is used as a plunge router for taking shallow cuts then keep cutting deeper. I set it to stop a little shallow of the final depth. I get great results. Oh, on the Shopsmith I am planning on cutting down the 4-rails so it takes up less floor space. I only use it for a drill press and occasionally sanding. Again, welcome!

My, what a workshop you have. I just dream of having enough space and equipment to keep me busy. I was raised in Southwest Oklahoma, a country boy I might add.
