I just recently got into woodworking, since I am retired now and have more time on my hands than I know what to do with (besides the wife's honey-do list). I was looking for some ideas for around the house to put my new tools to use, especially for the ideal garage workbench plan, when I found this website.

So a few things I learned this weekend…

The byproduct of woodworking is saw dust, and you shouldn’t try to work where you store your tools. I need to figure out how to rig up a saw dust collection vac.

And this can be very addicting..

I caught her a few years back while on lunch with my First Sergeant (supervisor). She was the biggest bass I have ever landed, 10-3, and got me into the Bassmaster Lunker Club.
