Today I got one year older and am now at 62 and counting. Do I feel old? Not really, but unfortunately the pains remind me I ain't getting younger. I got the mind of a kid, but the body of an old man. Too bad it can't be the other way around. :)

HAPPY BIRTHDAY JAMES!!! My Geritol  is: "EARLY TO RISE AND LATE TO RETIRE."   Hope you had a nice birthday.    

Happy Birthday James!  They are shooting off fireworks in your honor!  Hope you had a great day!

Happy birthday james, were have too make matching rocking chairs ha.

Happy Birthday!!   I hope you get a awesome new tool that you have been hoping for!

Actually, I just had a normal day off. No gifts, no cake, no ice cream and no dancers.

As for a new tool, I don't even have the tools I had. I left Florida back in March and went back to Georgia and stayed with my Aunt for about 3 months. I left everything I had....drills, tablesaw, mitersaw, Kreg Jig, 47" tv, computer, PS3 and other stuff. I felt at the time we was heading into a situation where we would have to move as there was hardly any money coming in. So I just packed up my clothes and my fire-proof safe and left.

After 3 months with my Aunt we had a disagreement so I packed up my clothes and safe and left again with no where to go. I spend 8 days and nights in my car. I tried getting hold of my niece in LaGrange, GA but wasn't able to. I dialed a number on my phone and nephew answered and I told him what had happened and he said to come back to Florida. So that is where I am right now in Tampa, FL.

Some of the tools are here, but in my mind they don't belong to me anymore. I havn't built anything since February and with no shop and no money for wood, I probably won't built anything for a while.

But I enjoy coming here, looking at everyone's projects, reading the posts and helping out where I can.

Hi James, sorry I missed your birthday, so HAPPY BELATED BIRTH DAY, I dont want to hear that 62 is old, I still have a couple of years till I reach that age, but I do know all about the aches and pains. Like grunting or moaning everytime you sit or get out of a chair, at least working with wood helps to keep me young.

Hope you had a good day!

Miter Saw Recommendation

I’m looking to upgrade my miter saw. I’m willing to invest a good amount of money to get one with the precision pocket hole joinery requires. Would anyone like to offer a recommended model?

Miter saw stand

     Has anyone used one of the Kreg Universal Stand configurations as the base for a miter saw workstation with fold down wings?  I scrolled through the pics in the community and all I saw were using a DIY base cabinet.  I have an extra Kreg router…Continue

New Kreg 720Pro

I saw the video Kreg put out for this new jig and had high hopes for it.

I purchased one today and am very disappointed with it.

First the docking station is extremely cheap. The plastic is pathetic. A Lego has more…

Not Pleased With Pocket Hole Construction

Several months ago, I purchased the Kreg K4MS so that I could build the Lego Table as outlined on the companion "buildsomething" web site which exclusively uses pocket hole construction.  I have considerable experience with conventional…
