O.k. then, I found this jointer for $60 bucks. I figured I didn't have much to lose, so I bought it.
I needed to get one for a project I was working on and thought, "this will get the job done, then maybe I will fix it up."
Turns out this is a 1949 Walker Turner model. I finished the project and moved on to another one. When I finally had a little spare time I started tearing it down. In true "Jimmer" fashion I went a little crazy on the project. Every black part you see is powder coated, I wire wheeled the knobs and hardware, rebuilt the motor and resurfaced the top of the table. I also built a cart to roll it around on.
I think it's safe to say I have one of the coolest 1949 jointers around. Also Does this take me another step down the road of "uncool old woodworker guy"?

A guy in Logan saw some pictures of my bike online and contacted me to make some modifications on his. He drove down to drop off the bike. I converted the xs650 to a hardtail with a 4" stretch and mounted a sportster peanut tank. Good luck with the rest of the project bro!

Awhile back I met a very kind woman who lives in Levan. She hired me to build her custom interior rail as well and an arbor for her front yard. The most recent job I did was a White Oak front door for her. She had an idea of what she wanted, but couldn't find it anywhere, so she called me. It's a craftsman style door with Gothic glass windows, she loved it.
