Throughout my career as a woodworker, spanning both my hobbyist and professional years, I have had the honor and pleasure of both teaching and writing articles on various woodworking topics. In this section I will collect those articles and compile them into four volumes:
1) Finishing & Refinishing,
2) General Woodworking,
3) Cabinetmaking and
The Finishing & Refinishing articles are the most numerous since that subject has held my interest from my earliest days as a woodworker. I still recall the finish I applied to my first woodworking project in Lloyd Near's 7th grade shop class; a simple skirt hanger for my mother, finished with shellac and hand rubbed with pumice until the surface was glass smooth.
These articles reflect my experiences and observations. From time to time I will add to this collection as I continue to explore and (hopefully) to learn. Whatever I may have to offer in these articles is simply my attempt to share with other woodworkers the fruits of my God given vocation. Your comments, suggestions and questions are, of course, welcome.
