In March I moved in with my girlfriend and neither one of us had a dining room table. I told her don't worry, I'll make us one. She asked me if I knew how to create one, so I took her here to this site and showed her all of my previous projects. After she saw the pie safe, she basically said, "OK, if you know how to make one of those, then you know how to make a dining room table. I trust you."
I did have to tell her, though, that I'm not a chair maker. We'd have to find…Continue

Wow, it’s been a long time since I’ve written, but I have still kept woodworking, trust me. 2010 has been a whirlwind ride, that’s for sure. A new girlfriend, a new job, moving soon into a new townhouse, you name it. I didn’t forget about anyone, just had a lot on my plate this year.

Last Thursday I received my Multi-Mark in the mail. I opened my package and pulled out the tool. I couldn't wait to open this thing up and try it out. It's a quick assembly of putting the metal guage slide to the plastic handle and screwing tight the brass knob. The tool allows for 90 degree square, 45 degree angle, and 0 degree straight edge. I was also happy to see that a leveling bubble was included in the plastic handle too. One can always use one of those.
I grew up…Continue
