I have been woodworking for about 1/2 of my life as a hobbist. A couple years ago, my wife and I bought our first home, and I vowed to build every piece of furniture in it. (Sometimes the wife wants something faster than I can make it, so that vow is sometimes broken) The recent birth of our first born son caused me to build my most favorite piece yet, the cherry cradle.

My high school shop teacher gave me the woodwoking bug 15 years ago. His name will be forever blessed (and cursed occasionally). Thank you, Mr. Minor.

I currently work as a Construction Bond Underwriter for a Surety company. At some point in the future, I hope to make woodworking my profession, or at least part time profession. I have made a few commissioned pieces and with a little luck the good Lord will allow me to continue to do so.

I welcome all comments and critiques to my work/posts.
