Location: Garland, Texas

My name is Mike. I have gradually gotten into woodworking. I started out at the age of 17 by framing houses. After that it was a little while before I did any other type of woodworking. When I did, it started with scroll saw work and I am now incorporating that into inlay projects. I enjoy all types of wood working, but do not have that much experience. I make a lot of saw dust, but some turn out and others don't. But, it is what it is..... Keeps me out of trouble! Because I work in a 4 X 15 section of my garage, most of my tools are on wheels. I am getting pretty good a setting up and tearing down. I really like inlay and marquetry although I haven’t attempted any marquetry up to this point. I am just now to the point that I buy wood (as opposed to finding scraps in dumpsters). Most of it is the Home Decrap specials, but every once in a while I go to the “real” wood store. That doesn’t happen too often. The prices are high as a cat’s back!

Welcome! There’s alot of great talent here to learn from. I know you’ll find it worth the time spent. Careful though, it’s addictive and you can spend more time looking than in your shop very easily. Glad to see another from north Texas. I’m an hour east of you in Sulphur Springs. Great work so far.

Tom, you’re right! I have found that to be VERY true. It is like waiting for the Super Bowl to come on. I keep the site open while I am at work and constantly check to see what new projects pop up. By far, my favorite site of all!

I was looking on your projects and at a glance, I have learned a lot of techniques from your work outcome. Experience is really a big asset in craftsmanship. I can imagine a lot of things to do based on your projects posted here. I would take this opportunity to thank you for sharing your works. Keep it going.
