Grizzly G0691, 3HP Leeson motor /w 52” rip and an attached router table.This is my first big boy toy, I purchased it used in a local classified for $1300. I think I got a great deal considering it’s outstanding condition, there isn’t so much as a scratch on the paint. :)Now I just need to get the wiring set up so I can start making some sawdust.

So I moved into a new house this month. A new house with a huge garage.My focus for the next little while will be on setting up a workshop on the cheap. The big wall unit there was built for around $90 including fasteners and hardware.Stay tuned.

Japanese chisel set up! Instructions are in the photos.

There is already a lot of guides on how to do this, but I wanted to experiment and figure out my own method. Two of my chisels are 3/8” shorter as a result…shh…

Feel free to message me with any questions.

Another Christmas present from this month. 

Morakniv in Black Walnut with Macassar Ebony accents.

Don’t ask me what that residue on the blade is, I have no idea.

I made my older brother a coat stand for Christmas.

Polyurethane on Black Walnut.

Crib/toddler-bed/full-size bed I’m making for my first grandchild. Got it leveled up, plumb, clamped then drilled the connector bolt holes and pinned the bed slats. One more day to finish up the blind-nut installation and it’s ready for finish. I took time off this project for two paying jobs but it’s nice to be back making stuff for the family again.

Some more photos of the Torii Cabinet, a couple detail shots as well.
