I'm not really a fine woodworker but I do enjoy building with wood. I did build some cabinetry into a house I owned a few years ago and that project turned out pretty well. I've built more radio controlled airplanes than I can count. I've also repaired and restored a few older full sized airplanes with plenty of wood in them. The biggest and most interesting was a Boeing PT-17 Stearman. The ribs in the Stearman are spruce with mahogany ply gussets. I've also worked on a number of small aerobatic competition planes including the aircraft of Debby Rihn-Harvey who has been on the US Aerobatic team for about 20 years running. My woodworking interests lie mostly with home improvements. My shop tools consist of a 10" Craftsman table saw, 12" Craftsman band saw, 20" Craftsman scroll saw, some drill presses, sanding and grinding stations, a miter saw and welding equipment. All of the Craftsman tools are old and solid.

Update May 2020: Now retired, moved back near the old stomping grounds on the outskirts of Houston. NO SHOP at the new house but plans have been approved by the city and I'm looking for a contractor. Lots of cabinets and benches to build once the shop is done.

Thanks for the welcome. I found the site looking for a blade guard for my old Craftsman radial arm saw. I bought it from my idiot neighbor who didn’t like the guard so he took it off and threw it away. Mine’s too old to upgrade but it’s too good to destroy. Even teh old guard from an upgraded saw would be a huge improvement over no guard. I built a 16×20workshop with it, without the guard, but as I’ve gotten older I just don’t enjoy the exposed whirling blade as much as I once did. If anyone has an old, unwanted blade guard I would apperciate a note.
