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.
