I have wood work to finish for my wife and family and if you don't mind
I would like to post some pictures of that.
Jay

I got to visit Jay last weekend and had a tour of his shop.
He has that old iron bug but good.
A couple of hours was not enough.
Hopefully I will get out that way again after school ends.

About that posting of pictures of his wood working ...
I gotta warn you, Do not to let SWMBO see them or
you will find yourself in a new hobby that does not
involve as much dirt and grease.:D

To late for Me, My wife saw Jay's woodwork last june when we were there.
I don't have to worry swmbo knows that I'm a butcher when it comes to wood.
Jay is quite the craftsman and it would be interesting to see more posted here.

What is this "wood" stuff..Is it ferrous or non ferrous.. Easily welded and machined????

It sounds exotic.. :D

Do we have any pictures of Jay's woodwork? I work wood as well and know a bunch of guys here do also. Would sure like to see his stuff.

Here's me stumbling around trying to make a chessboard (http://tony-stormcrow.blogspot.com/2008/05/making-chessboard.html). I don't care much for blogspot's navigation, look for the "newer post" link at the bottom.

looks good to me. my high school wood shop teacher would have been chasing you around the room with a stick for leaving a plane on the bench blade down :) crazy SOB, with all the running his stick wielding rants created he was probably the most dangerous thing in the shop.

The blade wasn't down. I detension the blade and raise it when I am done using it.

Thanks Tom and everyone, for letting me post wood working. I have not been out in the shop much, but working on the house.

Here are some of the kitchen I built. If you click on a picture you will get a full sized view.

This is the library I have been trying to finish so I can get back in the shop. Although I have snuck out a couple of times.

Thanks Tony,

I can honestly say I would rather be making chips of metal than wood. But I promised the wife I would finish it.

Stunning craftsmanship........hard to beat the warmth and beauty of wood applied by an expert.........if you could find someone today with the skills to replicate it you likely couldn't afford it.........
