Hello from Michigan

Just found this site. Looks pretty friendly. I've been woodworking as a hobby for about 40 years. I'm retiring again at the end of the month so I'll have more time to make sawdust. Some of my projects are pictured here: http://tooltime47.zenfolio.com/f316663555/

Welcome Dave,
Great work. I like the maple end tables, especially the one that the ambrosia beetle got into. Very nice.

Beautiful work tooltime47. You will be passing on some information yourself. From the looks of your work you should never be bored in your retirement. Maybe broke, but not bored. Enjoy the forum.

That is some beautiful work, tooltime47 ! Its a real work of art that can stay in the family for generations. Your children's children's children will know you for your craftsmanship, and yes it does shape lives. My family were boat builders from the Netherlands. I am proud to be a part of that. Congratulations
