    Hi there!

    I am a retired guy in SW Minnesota. I have a glucose powered shop 14' x 14'. Equipped with a wood stove for heat, a Roubeau bench, and a nice collection of vintage hand tools.

    I primarily design and build Arts and Crafts style furniture from native air dried white oak. I'm here to try to keep the learning curve verticle.

    Welcome
    If you don't take pride in your work, life get's pretty boring.

    Rule of thumb is if you donít know what tool to buy next, then you probably donít need it yet.
