For the manner in which men live is so different from the way in which they ought to live, that he who leaves the common course for that which he ought to follow will find that it leads him to ruin rather than safety.

First post, an introduction

If you randomly stumbled upon this, well, my apologies.
We'll see as time goes by how well I keep up with this thing. I'm here to share (read take) woodworking techniques and related, uh, stuff. My primary interests are with old tools (for purposes of the blog anyway). After that it gets into doing stupid things with old British motorcycles, which I'm sure you're not interested in. Unless, of course, 300 pound overpowered antique 650's are your thing. They're my thing, because I'm a wrench and gear head. They are also part of the reason I want to learn the QUIET skills of working wood by hand.
I also tend to get rather worked up about politics, but I'll try to keep my ramblings on that topic to myself.
So, let's see if we can get this party started. I'm betting party is the wrong word. I don't often stay up past 10 o'clock and I'm not supposed to drink (much). We'll try again.
So, let's see if we can get this rather boring little blog started. There, that's more like it.
And if you're wondering about the name of this little blog, is has mainly to do with the fact that there is very little to do with partying or sins of the flesh going on inside my life. Damn.
