2×4 Workbench As I've begun making more and working on more projects, I realized I needed more space to do those things.

I have two briskets, a half gal. of Luling sauce, close to a cord of Oak and Pecan, and I'm making a bed of Mesquite coals as I type.

Romance and Fact-Finding My bride and I spent the last few days in the north Georgia mountains, at Unicoi State Park, tucked away in a cozy little cabin.

Plastic Parts Organisers Rack So, I've been on a prolonged mission to get the garage workshop a bit more organised. One thing that had frustrated me was having screws, bolts, nuts etc in small jars and packets in different places. Not knowing what I had caused me to buy doubles of common items and then it was a hassle finding things.

Custom Teak Decking For a three year stint I worked for a high-end custom yacht building company in Seattle.

During those three years we launched three yachts and I moved on while in the beginning stages of a forth.

Lock Miter Drawers When I need to batch out a bunch of drawer boxes, I use a lock miter router bit. Not only does this bit create a joint with a clean, mitered look on the outside, but the profile of the bit gives the drawer a good mechanical joint with plenty of glue surface.

Build Stronger, Sag-Proof Shelves Have you ever heard a shelf groan? Well, maybe not, but some shelves look like they would if they could.
