I enjoy all kinds of joinery. Everything from boxes to furniture to puzzles. I am fascinated with the way things go together.
I am a self-taught woodworker who has only really learned from reading books and through experience. I never took a formal woodworking class except for shop class in Junior High. (I made an ice scraper.)
I believe if you set out to do something, you'd better do it right. There's no substitute for quality either. I want my works to last a couple of lifetimes.
So, whenever I go into my shop, I take my time and make sure everything is perfect. It may take me a very long time to complete a project, but that's okay! I enjoy not only the end product, but the process of buiding too.
