I am a Scottish Texan who butchers wood as a therapy for life's little teases! I am just developing a workshop - 1/2 of a 2 car garage.

I built John Whites 'New fangled Workbench' about a year ago but there are a number of 'bits' that need finishing up or improving. Its a great workbench though. I 'upsized' it somewhat to cope with bigger contruction projects but if I were doing it again I would stick closer to John's advices. I am modifying it somewhat to use the 'tool well' to run a trapped dolly in and that will be my sliding table for my 10" Hitachi contractor's tablesaw and big sheet cuts. I am currently modifying a universal tablesaw jig I have seen to bridge the nearly 3/8" gap that my direct drive saw has that makes creating a zero clearance insert for it impossible.

Recent projects - a screen porch conversion of a carport - we got a friend of mine a lot of cool living space for not a lot of $$$ and a set of redwood open plan stairs from the 2nd floor verandah to the back garden as an access to another friend's painting studio.

I am amazed at the work I see posted here on LJ and hope to catch up in the next decade or two.

Welcome to Lumberjocks. The projects are an inspiration, the information is priceless and the people are supportive. The only problem is, the site can get addictive.

God Bless
