Well, I have never had a BLOG before, so I figured I would give it a try. I am a new woodworker with a lot of thirst for learning new things and putting them to use. I have been going at it for a little less than a year. I have been around woodworking all my life because my dad has done it and even had his own companies that work in wood. So it is not a foreign thing, just something I never had the time or space to get interested in until now.

Almost two years ago, I bought a new house, and it has a full basement. Wow, what a world of possibility. It has since started turning into the wood shop. After many hours of watching Youtube videos and learning new skills, I am slowly getting a shop put together. I made a grand work bench shortly after moving in. Just had some hand tools and power tools. No big saws or anything. Then I picked up a new Porter Cable table saw at lowes for a pretty good deal. Then things really took off. Every week it seems that I need something new, or a new place to get wood, or trying new things out. I has been fun thus far and I look forward to many years of fun and challenge. Thanks for reading, and more to come in the future.

As long as you continue to learn it will never get boring. This is one of the all time great addictions.
