Good day to all who have chosen to turn a listening ear my way. I am a full time student and stay at home dad here in the great state of NC, who has found a new and exciting hobby in woodworking. I have always been fascinated and intrigued by what people could do with and to wood and now I’ve decided, with the blessing of the love of my life, to delve into the world of custom woodwork.
To start this foray into the unknown, and grease the wife gears a little, my first project is going to be rail mounted planter boxes for the front porch so my wife can grow herbs and edible flowers. Some of the later projects I would like to tackle are a toy chest for my daughter, a set of Adirondack chairs for me and the women in my life, matching pair for my wife and I with foot stools and a smaller version for my daughter and if I can get my hands on the tools necessary, an end grain cutting board similar to the one detailed on this site by dewoodwork.
All this to say, to those that have graciously read this, my first blog entry ever, I welcome any and all hints, tips and general words of wisdom from all of you, my fellow lumberjocks.
Thank you, and until next time, goodnight.
