This is a mahogany table that i made for mom's birthday. It has maple inlayed in the legs and a hidden drawer with dovetailed purple heart slides. I applied a coat of minwax english chestnut and then a coat of dark walnut and finished it off with three coats of lacquer.

Last year, I bought a Reverse Osmosis Water Filter. It was installed by the dealer/service provider. Some time after, one of the head gaskets in the unit popped. The unit began a free-flow leak underneath the sink. The water was flowing towards the exterior wall and not into the rest of the...
Where's my blog content?
Well, that's a good question. It didn't take me long to join LJ after I stumbled on to if from the Wood Whisperer site but I haven't added any info about my shop, projects, or blog entries. I've been one of those lurker types just putting in comments about other's...
