    Smile Hi folks, glad to be here!

    Hi all,

    Just joined up yesterday. I found out about the site through a post by Jeff Horton on Woodnet. I got into woodworking when I decided I couldn't afford to replace my kitchen cabinets. I re-finished the uppers, rebuilt the lowers, replaced the particle-board with plywood, added pullouts, etc. Now I am designing an island that my wife has asked for. I also want to get into furniture when the kitchen is done.

    And yes, I admit to being a bit of a tool collector, but I use almost all of them, and when I get my workbench built will use the rest (some hand planes, etc.). My latest acquisition was a 1950-ish Craftsman drill press that I picked up after reading about Jeff's rebuild

    When not trying to work wood I am an un-employed tech worker, ride both road and mountain bikes, and spend time with my wife.

    See you in the garage - er shop!

    Ah yes, pictures - well, it's not done yet - been a long project because I'm pretty slow. I did manage to do all the major work with it being out of commission (ie. no sink or dishwasher) only 4 days as I did it in stages. I'll see if I can find the before pics and take some current ones.

    Hi Carl, and welcome to the clubhouse. When I helped you set up your account, I had second thoughts, but then I decided not to hold your acquaintence with Jeff Horton against you. Plus, I figured if we let me in, we should let you in.

    Welcome Carl!

    So your marrige has survived the kitchen reno? Lots don't, so you must be doing something right!

    and like Vaughn says, we won't hold the "Jeff" thing against you...........especially if we see pics of the old iron C-man drill press

    Cheers!
