Location: Central CT, USA

I'm an AutoCAD drafter and I currently work for a mechanical design firm that installs and services building automation systems for HVAC, security/access control, energy monitoring/management and CCTV. Previously, I have worked in custom cabinet shops doing woodworking, operating a CNC production router, and design and drafting. I have been interested in woodworking, architecture, drafting and design since Jr high school. My hobbies include woodworking, mountain biking, roller hockey, and anything to do with CAD drafting...either 2D, or 3D. I am proficient in AutoCAD, Sketchup, Podium, Cabinetvision, Mastercam and several online FPS games! I live in CT with my wife, stepdaughter and golden retriever.

Hey Dan, I like your projects, especially the Keep sake box. The Oak I cut is mostly Black Oak, it is a little easier to machine and sand. The White Oak is much harder and wears me out faster. Your tree would have made some nice lumber.

Welcome to LumberJocks!

I like your poker table. Awesome work!

This is an awesome group of woodworkers that generously share their talents, passion and interest in woodworking. We are looking forward to your projects and input.

Not to hit you up with this too early, but please notify Tom of any tools you are willing to share with your fellow LumberJocks!

By the way, don’t worry too much about the Lumebrjock Shop Inspection. While it seems intimidating the day they visit, Douglas and Ms Debbie are pretty kind!

LumberJocks is the premier member based woodworking site.

I just ran across your ‘handle’ in scanning the “Pulse” section. Sometimes I’m slow in getting things, but your triple play on words made me grin big! And, it’s so much more pleasing a handle than, say, “Screw Driver”!

Thanks for the humor!

Brad you wanted the Model number of the Delta Mobile Base I am using on the Grizzly Table Saw. The model is 50-273 and it measures 20 5/8” x 20 5/8”. It is amazingly sturdy and has adequate adjustment to handle most uneven floors. I would give it an excellent rating. Like most of the mobile bases for Cabinet Saws it is very low to the floor even when in the “mobile” position. I would recommend it for the Grizzly Saw. I purchased mine through
