Location: Fairview Park, Ohio

I am a greenhorn, I've built kitchen cabinets, *simple* furniture, wood doo-dads(pens, Flyrods, flyboxes). Not to mention the Shop stuff, I built Norms Router Table, a few rolling cart/cabinets etc.

I figured out how to make wood heater registers. I made a few jigs, all but one ended up in the scrap heap… currently expanding the design to accommodate a wide(30”) return air vent, still working out the details of the intermediate stiles. Sadly I did not chronicle the development with photos. I was just too busy making sawdust. The registers do not have dampers in them and some would say that is a deficiency but the ducts in my house have damper/valves in the basement, it may be my ignorance but I think that is ok, we now have a full year with “my” registers in the Kitchen, Living Room and one 2nd floor Bedroom and everything seems fine.

Last year I had to take down a few large Cherry and Maple trees, so I bought a chainsaw mill and sliced them up into over 500BdFt of 4/4 and 5/4 lumber some of the Maple is about 18” wide and 8’ long I am thinking of book-matching them to make a desk top for my den… but they are still drying, currently inside at %16.

My next projects are one, or more (depending on the shop forewoman), of the following; Home Office Furniture for my Den (currently it is just a storage bedroom), Strip plank Kayak, more shop stuff, Fireplace Mantle and Entertainment Center. Well that is what is on the list, but I am sure that will change.
