Checkout my YouTube channel where I introduce a new series called “Level Zero” . This series will focus on answering the most basic questions that for some reason tool companies and other woodworkers assume you already know. The first video discusses router guide bushings, what they are and how they work. This is my first… Continue reading In the flesh
A few months ago, I took on making a gaming table for a friend. The dimensions for the table were based upon the ideal space each player would have for his or her gaming pieces. The table needed to be a hexagon where 2a = 60″ (or a = 30″)! That is a big table! So… Continue reading A Table to Remember
Now don’t get me wrong, I love this table. But I do NOT like going out in my cold garage. I also do not LOVE the finishing process. But I did it. I turned on my heater for 4 days straight and during nap time or after baby bedtime, I applied layer upon layer of… Continue reading Thankful to be done

Yes, that is right. I have finally branded myself. I can’t even remember how long ago my husband and I were sitting around one weekend having cocktails and we came up with A.N.D. Woodworking. I had even forgotten about it until he recently reminded me. But let me get back to my business name in… Continue reading A.N.D. Woodworking Unleashed
After an extended hiatus due to child bearing, I quit my paying job to raise my kids…and during naps I’ve had time to do a little woodworking! Since I’m no longer making any money, my projects need to be economical. I found an antique door and decided to repurpose it into a king-sized headboard! After… Continue reading I’m Back!!

I will create another blog about my basement playroom project and shelves in the next couple weeks. My summer and fall was consumed… Continue reading The last 2%
