It took some doing, but I finally got logged back in.
I'm down in far western Kentucky, near Paducah. I went to grad school at WKU, but that was in the late 70s. Along with teaching, I have a farm and have been re-doing my shop from a place to work on equipment to a woodworking shop, in preparation for when I retire and can just build things for fun. My house has lots of furniture and such that my great grandfather, grandfather and father made. My father passed when I was young, so I didn't learn much about woodworking, but did inherit a lot of hand tools, which I'm now trying to learn how to use. I've mostly used power tools to build things, from book cases, to my barn and shop. Mostly, I've been building things to organize my shop, like tool stands, storage cases, and clamp racks.
My next project is going to be a way to store my 20+ handplanes, which I'm looking forward to restoring and putting into use.
I'm not sure how to post any photos here, as the "rules" say not to post attachments, yet there is a "drag files here to attach" option.
