I've always enjoyed woodworking. I learned everything I know about the craft from my Dad and some of my earliest memories take place in his workshop. As I've found myself all of a sudden in full-blown adulthood with a wife, daughter, house... and the infamous honey-do list, I've realized how long its been and how far I've strayed from one of my favorite hobbies (woodworking). Actually I recently realized it didn't happen all of a sudden and how much time has actually elapsed.
Most of my free time has been spent remodeling our 114 year old house. Granted, there's a lot of carpentry involved and I've enjoyed every minute of it, but it's not what any of us would consider woodworking. Now that the house remodel is under control, I hope to focus a bit more on woodworking.
I'm certainly still a novice, but hope that over time I'll be able to feel confident in updating that skill level.
I'm currently living in São Paulo Brazil for work reasons, but have a scheduled return date in a few months and am counting down the days to when I'll be home in Chicago setting up my shop.
I've already learned a lot from the LJ community and look forward to putting some of that new found knowledge to use.
Thanks for having me!
