A Toast To New Beginnings

          I am a woodworking junkie by nature.  I have been working with wood since I was a kid in school.  It's in my blood.  I come from a long line of carpenters.  I was a carpenter myself for a large portion of my life, but thanks to the economy crash back in the late 90's I ended up leaving my desired field.  Now I work in an office.  I sit behind a computer all day and have only passing memories of the hundreds of homes that I've helped to build during my younger years.

           I recently became engaged to my girlfriend of 2-years.  She and I moved in together and have had to combine two lives worth of belonging into one house.  With that said, there hasn't been much space to call my own.

          Last November I celebrated another birthday, and my "soon to be" Father-in-law and Mother-in-law bought me a new table saw as a gift.  This new gift had a marvelous affect on my life.  It forced me to clear a little space in the garage to put together a small woodworking shop (pictured above).  After I cleared out half of the garage, I promptly pulled all of my old woodworking tools out of storage.  I then built myself a new work bench, bought a few more tools that needed replacing, and got busy creating things.

          I plan to spend more time taking photos of my work as it is in progress and use this new blog as a tutorial on how to build the items that I make.  There is also a link to my Etsy store at the top of the page where you can find the items that I make.

          Thank you for visiting my page.  I hope you become a regular visitor.
