    This one has me “stumped”. I bought this from a fellow turner and he didn’t remember what it was. I believe it is a type of rosewood. I have checked...

About William C Rogers
Biography:
Thought I would update this. I have been woodworking as a hobby for many years. I enjoy making gifts for people and has sold some things, but not really what I want to do. I am fortunate to have a 30 X 56 workshop and looking forward to retiring this year. I am not looking forward to packing the workshop as I have accumulated a lot of tools over the years. Some of the main tools I have are a Jet cabinet saw, Mini-Max FS35, Milwaukee 12 in sliding miter, Powermatic 90, Jet mini lathe, Delta mini lathe, jet band saw, large homemade router table with Incra LS 25, Dewalt 735, Dewalt Scroll Saw, Supermax drum sander,multiple grinders and sanders, amd many hand tools. I will be selling this house this year and building a new house and workshop. The new workshop will be slightly smaller 30 X 40, but with hot water heat as I hate cold feet. Right now I am building all the cabinets for the new house. I'll change this once I have the new shop up and running.
Update: I have sold my house and built another house. I did the kitchen and laundry room cabinets and they came out great. My new shop is larger than I first thought it would be 30 X 50. I did the hot water radient heat and love it. I also bought a SawStop 3hp PCS. Still not set up yet, but getting close.
