Emerging from the sawdust...

Hello from Whiteland Indiana!

After a divorce, I have most of my tools out of storage and have begun setting up shop in my garage. I enjoy home improvement and making things for the home and friends.

I've made toys, furniture, lanterns, carvings, a little of everything. Mostly based on a need.

Unfortunately I lost the pics of the projects I made for the ex, but at least I have the awards from the Fair :P


Ive posted a few pics, more to follow! Dining table is next!

I am 22+ years into my Law Enforcement carreer and still going strong!

Thanks! It was a basic design for Wood Magazine, and I changed it to suit my needs. I liked the wavey glass better than there latice. I have since made a matching computer area next to it. The entertainment center is a solid cherry top and base with stain and poly and the case is solid ash with a clear finish.

I actually thought it was a mesh screen! Glad you pointed that one out!

Welcome aboard. I'm looking forward to seeing some of your new work. Glad to hear you're getting the shop back in order.

after years of subscribing to Wood Magazine and others, I finally find a project from 2007 that now will fit my needs and of course...thats the issue I am missing.# 187 arghhh its probably around in a tub in an attic but ya know, its 95 degrees, I think I will just go try the library and make copies!

I really like the nestled outfeed table on casters in that issue, it will suit my needs well plus, I found a 6" wood vise on craigs list for $15 to add to it!
