Hi. My name is Don Firth and I'm Grampa - Welcome to the workshop. Grampa's Workshop is presented mainly for the new and intermediate level woodworker.

Don't miss "The U-Made-It Gallery" and the "My Projects" pages, currently with over 1,200 project photos between them! Put your feet up and stay a while as we checkout the pages of the workshop.

I hope you enjoy your visit. Come on back and see us often.

Hi Everyone,

I have a short message for all visitors to Grampa's Workshop. Due to health problems,
I'm afraid that I can no longer run Grampa's Workshop. The health issues
are not life threatening, but more related to the lessening of my abilities due to MS..

Instead of just letting this site sit here forever unattended and all the while having
to pay for the space it occupies on the internet, the unfortunate but inevitable outcome
will be to close this site down.

If anyone is interested in acquiring this site please direct your inquiries to me
donfirth@grampasworkshop.net or woodman95@mail.com .

It's been a pleasure to run this site and to have become acquainted with many of you.

Stay well and always measure twice - cut once.

May I ask , , ,

As regular visitors to this site know, we sell nothing here, we have very few ads,
no popups, and this site is free of charge for all to enjoy.
You will however see a Rockler banner ad at the top of some pages.

May I ask that if you need anything from Rockler, that you get to their site
from Grampa's Workshop by clicking on the Rockler banner at the top of the page.
Then if you purchase something from Rockler, I will get a small referral consideration
from Rockler which will help to offset the website hosting charges I must pay to run this site.

Thank you for visiting and for considering my request and do enjoy your visit!
