So What's This All About...

Friday, July 17th, 2009


Well, as the name implies this is my blog and it is largely about woodworking.  I use the word "largely" because I may post about safety issues or products for safety, a new tool I recently bought or perhaps an old one that I am restoring and want to publish hard-to-find resources for others. Regardless, this is something I have wanted to do for some time now but for whatever reason never got around to it.


What I do in my shop may not warrant international acclaim,  but I routinely use the internet to find ideas and information. More often that not this information comes from other enthusiasts who wish to share their knowledge for the benefit of others and to promote the art  of woodworking itself.  In that regard I consider this blog as my way of "returning the favor" so perhaps others can find what I do beneficial in their shops.


Now, bear in mind what works for me may not work for others. For instance, I may build a jig or fixture for my particular tablesaw and while my approach or design will work on my saw it may not work on other makes or models.  The important thing to remember is the concept and that the actual design may need to be altered to suit your particular tool.


Lastly, the decision to maintain readership of this blog belongs exclusively to the person doing the reading. If you enjoy what you see then go ahead and bookmark my site in your Favorites list and check back often. I don't like, nor do I wish to maintain, a contact list comprised of 100's of e-mail addresses similar to that of a subscription-based newsletter .


Now that I have completed this informal introduction grab a cup of coffee and cruise around my website.


If you have any questions or comments about this blog entry please do not hesitate to send me an e-mail. Thanks and be safe when working with tools!!!
