Uncle Wolfie thought it was christmas (my dad's Record jointer plane). What a treat cleaning up those long walnut edges. Sometimes you have to walk into the shop in the morning, take uncle wolfie off the rack and stretch his legs.
I started spending time in my garage a few years ago. Things started getting interesting. I like designing things. I like building these things. In an environmentally responsible way, of course, sustainable materials and construction that will last generations.
