Stupid is as stupid does

Sometimes I can be a knucklehead, even when I’ve planned things so as not to be one. And you’re asking, What stupid thing has he done now?

Playing the odds

Woodworking sometimes plays out like a day in Las Vegas.

The number one rule

Do you know the number one rule of woodworking? For a happy, healthy shop life I hope you do.

Moving miracles

Either I’m extremely lucky, or my movers were top-notch: All my machines are in perfect working order.

Nominal nonsense

OMG! I just learned that a 4×4 isn’t really a 4×4 – it’s a 3-1/2 x 3-1/2! Well, that explains a lot of project issues I’ve had over the years.

Moving is exciting! New places, new friends, new things to see and do, new restaurants and shopping – I love the moving experience. Except for one thing: Moving also stinks.
