My Pops was into it as a hobby. He passed in '97 and left me his tools which was the foundation to the shop I have now in my basement. We would watch Norm and all those shows on Sundays then play around in the shop. lol

I picked up alot of info by watching shows or reading books. "Jack of all trades, master of none" kinda thing.

There's a really cool project I'm in the middle of now. My Father started it but never got to finish it. It's pretty insane, but I don't want to let the cat out of the bag just yet. I plan on finishing it this Fall/Winter. You're gonna be like ---> when you see it. lmao

They weren't doing too well on ebay (nothing much was selling then, plus too much goes into them to let them go too cheap) but yes I have sold a few. They are so comfortable! I have thought about making James a blue one and using Chicago Cubs fabric for the ears. My best friend's boys love theirs.

I love your table Jeekinz!

Thanks guys.

Jeekins, DH keeps "meaning" to get into woodwork.... he had a subscription to "Wood" mag for 5 years before he figured out he hadn't made anything yet....

When I'm ready to start buying suprise woodworking tools I'm coming after you!!!!

My Dad also did alot, when he had energy.... made a table out of a civil war era hatch cover from some ship... really cool table, I'll get a pic sometime.

LOL...

Wood Magazine has some great weekend projects and alot of those plans are geared to novices.

I'd love to see that table.
