Grew up in central Ohio, learned to do some woodworking in junior high shop class, but didn't get back to it until I was in my late 30's. Now I concentrate on hand tool work, with a little bit of machining thrown in for projects that need to get done quickly.

My shop lives in half of my two car garage for now, and allows me to work in most conditions, although one day I hope to have a stand-alone shop building.

Most projects I take on are out of need, some are more for skill building and experimentation, others are to help supplement my growing shop. I primarily work in solid wood (both hardwoods and softwoods), although I'll use plywoods when I feel the need to. Hope to get into more veneering and carving in the future.

My philosophy towards this hobby is to slow down and enjoy the creative process, and not try to rush the finished product. This is a challenge that I'm slowly getting better at.

Hi guys (and ladies),

I appreciate the welcome! Very friendly bunch around here, I’ve noticed. I’ve been meaning to join for a whlie now, especially since I noticed more than a couple folks undertook building themselves a Holtzapffel style workbench. I just finished mine in Feb and I’m eager to see how other folks are coming along.

See you in the fourms!

Howdy! Welcome to LJ, the best woodworking community anywhere.

Cool workbench.

I have done a lot of work in Ohio up in Centerburg. The guys at Woodwerks know me pretty well. Tell them Todd from Montana says “Howdy.”

Hi Todd,

That store is about 5 miles from my house. I go there to “relax”, but it’s tough on the wallet. I’ll make sure I mention your name next time. Any chance I’ll get a discount? Heh.

You didn’t work on the “round house” up there did you? It’s a house with no interior corners, from what I understand. All the furniture is built into the curved walls. I’m told the refrigerator can be brought up from the kitchen into the bedroom with a handheld remote. If you did, we probably have a friend in common.
