frontpage “New JET Tool" 12" Sliding Compound Miter Saw.

I finally got a new miter saw. I purchased it with money I earned from my recent box shelves build. This will be a perfect addition to my new shop when it is finished this Spring at the cabin. This saw is awesome, and perfect for breaking down long stock. I need to do a bit of tuning before it will be good for final crosscuts. I love to get new tools. I have a couple more small builds coming up so look for more smaller tools soon.

frontpage “Building Shelves” Plywood Shelves for a Customer.

I finished up this project just after Thanksgiving and delivered all fifteen boxes. It was a simple but time consuming project, but my customer was quite happy and managed to get the shelves filled up right after I delivered them. I built an entire wall full of box shelves from birch plywood for a customer to use a display case in her front room. They are stained a dark Java from General Finishes, and they are made in fifteen seperate boxes in two different sizes. They will be stacked so they alternate sizes to stablize the cases.

First, no matter how much you know there is always more to learn. There is always a new tool or a new technique to learn and perfect. Perhaps that's the beauty of the craft.
