The spam here has gotten bad enough that I'm turning off all notifications. You're welcome to find me at one of my other online hangouts.
Bought a 1947 cottage in southwest Petaluma (about 45 minutes north of San Francisco) in January of 2008, our projects started by ripping out the carpets to reveal the gorgeous white oak floors. We never want to move again, so we're slowly turning this place into the home we want to spend the rest of our lives in.
We'll be building our own kitchen cabinets, eventually hope to build our own doors, make doing the place up with beautiful wooden fixtures our hobby.
I'm also slightly active over at LumberJocks, along with my own extensive web presence.

The face is 2” thick cherry, which will be carved, so I had to modify the clamp for my dovetail jig to hold it in place while I cut the dovetails: And then the top is an inset sink into a block of the same marble we used for the diag...
This went from “I wonder if Rubbermaid makes some outside storage cabinet thing” to this monstrosity, with sliding door, on the back of the workshop. Still need to clean finish fastening the sheet metal sides, but I was out of steam...
