"On looking upon it again, I can now see the cherry and poplar. I've been doing this a while, so I can recognize a few woods. At any rate, good work, and I would still like to see more when you have some."

Christmas in the Workshop

Posted on December 19, 2011 at 7:19am 0 Comments

I am not one of Santa's elves, but at this time of year I do a reasonable impression.



This year, I am making a couple of hope chests for my daughters.





The challenge in these pieces lies in…

My insanity plea, update,

Posted on April 12, 2011 at 12:30pm 0 Comments

A little over a year ago I posted about one of my ongoing woodworking projects-a homemade pipe organ.  I thought I would drop in an update:  I have finally completed the pipes, all four hundred and change of them,  for the keyboard.  I am now left with a decision:  Should I build fifty pipes for the pedal argan, or should I leave it keyboard only?  The pedal organ pipes would be the largest, and at… Continue

It's Shakespeare Day!

Posted on April 23, 2010 at 7:30am 8 Comments

Today is the 446th anniversary of the date traditionally assigned to Shakespeare’s birth. It is also the 396th anniversary of his death, but people being what they are, we tend to look upon the birthday rather than the deathday aspect of the matter, thus, perhaps, play some lip service to the long acclaimed notion of the ever-living, immortal bard.



But why do I speak of Shakespeare, the man from Stratford, and his life and death, when many believe that he did not, could not, in any… Continue

Lessons in Manliness

Posted on March 22, 2010 at 11:30am 1 Comment

My father. Born in Hamilton in 1922, died in Mississauga in 1996. In the almost three quarters of a century that he lived, he saw the Roaring Twenties, the Great Depression, the Second World War, the Post War Boom, the Cold War, the end of the Cold War. At the beginning of his life, cars were a luxury, and carts pulled by horses still rumbled regularly through the streets of Hamilton. The sound of an aeroplane flying overhead was enough to make people run out of their houses and look up. He…

Thanks. I figure a guy who takes time to welcome random people to a web community he's not in charge of is probably a guy worth knowing.

2014 Iron Bowl Predictions

As a devoted Auburn fan, I can easily say that the Auburn vs Alabama game is the biggest game of the year for us. After last year it would be hard to ask for a better performance from our boys, especially since we've been in a slump these last few weeks. So that being said I think that Alabama is going to win this year, especially since they're so good (like always). Plus it's going to be Tuscaloosa this year.If anything Bama is going to get back at us for making them look stupid last year with…See More
