Location: Wisconsin

I'm a hack that lives in Wisconsin. I like woodworking because it helps pass the long winter.

I'm self-taught, which explains my limited knowledge. I've been making simple furniture and cabinets for a long time, (out of necessity). I usually make face frame cabinets using a doweling jig and rabbeted joints. I'm trying to challenge myself by making more interesting projects using different joinery techniques.

I've been reading a lot on the forums and I'll be posting plenty of questions in the coming months. I really appreciate any advice I receive.
