  1. Wooden Finger

    Broke my finger and have to wear a splint for 4-6 weeks. Quickly tired of the clunky metal splint digging into my palm and bumping the "enter" key on my keyboard all day. So a scrap of cherry and an enjoyable hour in the shop made a big improvement. Does a wooden finger qualify me for Pirate...

    Handcrafted Wooden Rings I received a couple of comments with regards to how I build the wooden rings in my gallery, so I thought this would be a good place to share a bit about my process. This will not be the best-worded blog entry. I'll just kinda let my mind spill… My very first rings...

    I am looking at getting a new car and thinking about buying the WeatherTech floor liners. They look like they would do a really good job of keeping the snow and water off the floor. I would like to hear from anyone who has actual experience with them and how they like them.
