I am a new woodworker. I was asked to build a pergola by my wife, and since then I have been hooked. I am making much smaller and intricate projects now. I still need more practice than I can imagine, but I am willing to keep at it.
I am originally an Upstate New York boy raised in the sticks and the farm country of Western Pennsylvania. How I ended up in Los Angeles I'll never figure out. I have always enjoyed working with my hands. Unfortunately I have to use the brain to make a living.
My lovely wife has been nice enough to allow me to set up a shop in our garage. It isn't much yet, and I am finding organizing tools and supplies is more challenging than actually crafting a piece. The phrase "Where the hell is. . . ." can be heard quite often, and I finally figured out that any sentence that starts from the house with "Are you going to be out there all day... because I am going to make some plans if you are..." means drop what you're doing and get in the shower.
I am interested in making a buffet table, a vanity and shelf for the bathroom, and smaller projects just to have fun. So far I have made a potato bin and a small bookshelf.
Oh, and I need to build a simple 10x8 shed to get all the lawn machinery the heck out of the garage to make room for more wood and a router table!
I want to say that I really appreciate this site, and all the friendly folks I see here when I read the forums, and I wish you all the best of luck in wood and in life.
