    Welcome to the Family Don! I think you will like it here--nice people and good info. Sometimes you have to watch those people on the spinney side; seems they just go round and round. (That's my feeble attempt at humor for the week.)

    Going round and round as we speak.

    Welcome Don! What types of projects do you involve yourself with?
    Please feel free to add a picture or two so we can see what you have been up to.

    Thanks for the welcome

    I don't have any on particular style or type of project that I stick to. I have built several wine racks, tea boxes, a book stand, bandsaw boxes, and several small turnings. Basicly, whatever strikes me as an interesting project, or something off the wife's list. I just moved across town last year, so I am still trying to organize my shop. My current project is a new workbench. My current bench is just a couple of 2x4 sheets of 3/4 inch plywood on 2x4's, with a poorly installed (my fault) 6 inch face vice. I am building the English bench out of Chris Schwarz's workbench book. I will try to get some photo's out soon. I have the legs assembled, and the aprons temporarily clamped on. I need to flatten and plane the top next. It has been a great project so far and I am really enjoying building it.

    Thanks Don. I totally agree about checking items off the Honey Do list. The others sound interesting too, but what caught my attention was your plans for Chris Schwarz's English workbench. That is a beautiful book with some excellent plans. Best wishes with it.
