I saw Mike about a year or two ago, he was warehousing out @ the airport.

Awesome work!!!!!!
I am only planning on running rails, stiles and raised panels through the shaper at this time. I have given thought on a power feeder but just havent pulled the trigger on one yet. I know they will increase the ease and quality of the work.

Thanks, I wish I could say I am done but it's going to be awhile yet. I got the last door stained and clear coated the other day. Have more finish electrical to do, make and install beams for our master BR and get started making cabinets.

Got some trim done on #2 bedroom, I went with a classic craftsman style.



My daughter and I made some more beams for out master and installed them. Used 2x8's and 2x12's along with alot of labor. They turned out very nice.








Got three toilets set and in working order. My wife and daughters are now happier with me.




I was able to get started on some cabinetry in the kitchen. Mainly the oven and refrigerator cabinets. They are fairly large and to be exact in dimensions. I'll have to try to get some pics.

Been making some cabinets lately. This afternoon I had something happen that could have been wayyyy worse that it actually was.
I was running some raised door panels in the shaper and a box end wrench that I use for the fence adjustment fell in a hole above the 4 1/2" cutter doing 10,000rpm.All the sudden bam and saw sparks fly then heard something metal hit the floor and felt stinging pains in me. Turns out the wrench was spit out but several pieces of carbide broke of the cutter sending shrapnel outward. I should have been using the power feed but was not. I bled a little and am out a $100 shaper cutter. Oh well, I'll continue on for now. LIke I said it could have been alot worse.

Oh, here is a rustic door for a bath vanity made of home grown and milled oak. It's just mocked up, nothing clamped and glued.

Thanks, I don't know if I am talented but I have a huge drive and determination to do things myself.

Here is a new piece of oak I cut for the mantle. The other one was about 8" shy of being as wide as the rock. This guy here is very heavy, the picture doesn't do it any justice. It has plenty of character up close.

Guess I'll update the build with a few pics since someone bumped it up.


Playing trim carpenter and cabinet maker as of late. Painting isn't my favorite thig to do.
I hate it but it's got to be done. It's been alot of work on my part but it's finally starting to look like a home to me.

Yeah I want to work on cabinets but the boss has me doing trim. Trim takes some time because of the cutting/painting/caulking etc. I have my my miter saw set up with a dust collector and itís been working ok but still creating dust in the house. I am also trying to get the stairs finished.

I put a bunch of work into the stairwell this past weekend. I have been putting doing this off for a long time but think it came out well. Originally I didn't build them quite right and had to trim the sides and front along with cleaning all the primer and drywall junk off of them.

This is how they started.








I made a aluminum jig to help with cutting the treads and risers.





Just about done!





Here's a view from the top looking down.



I still need a little trim and some clear poly on the treads.
