The Woodshop Blog

Welcome to the Woodshop Blog. This is where I’ll be posting how-to’s of certain projects and other things in the future (stay tuned). I don’t do a write up on every build, but I usually take pictures and post them to my Facebook page. If you enjoy what you see there, be sure to give that ‘Like’ button a click.

Disclaimer: I know you’re a smart person (that’s why you’re here, right?) and I likely don’t need to lay this out, but I will anyways. What I post in my how-to’s is based on how I did it. It may not always be the best or safest way of accomplishing what I am doing. I accept no responsibility if you injure yourself or others in your pursuits, you (and you alone) are responsible for your own actions.

Enjoy, and work safe.
