Profile Information

Please tell us about yourself.
Just a veteran, still in the retired/reserves. been working in wood ( and concrete sometimes) for many a moon. Small shop, hobbyist type. Used to be called Whitedog. Those days are done. The avatar is now a black dog ( didn't Robert Plant have a song by that name?) Branching out to Mission Style stuff. Last count, I had FIVE grandBRATS running around, one is even licensed to drive in Ohio! Beware!
Please describe your main woodworking interests.
I like working with my HANDS, in about any thing take on. I like to take a pile of someone ele's scrap wood, ad "create" all kinds of items. From Shaker Styles, to porch railings. Going more to the Neaderthal Way of doing things. Hand tools are cheaper to use, less electrons needed to buy.

Mystery plank: Part two of the handtool story.

Posted on April 9, 2013 at 4:50pm 0 Comments

  Ok, part two.     grabbed a handsaw to trim a plank down, as I needed to harvest a panel out of a nasty looking board. The two chunks I cit off were almost mirror images of each other.   ( Might be a lap desk in the works?)   I was left with a 10" wide plank, about 19" or so long.     Rough sawn isn't the word for…

Took a bit, but I made it here.  Thanks for the invite, Steve.  I am humbled to be around some folks who served in more difficult times than I have been called to serve.
