I started making what I called “junk” when I got out of high school. I would see something that I thought was “cool”, and I would try to make it. Sometimes it would turn out OK, most of the time you could find a certain amount of my #1 woodworking tool: wood filler. For a while when I would complete a project, the family would inspect it to find my “trademark”. Thankfully, I have progressed to the point, thirty-three years later, that a can of wood filler lasts a lot longer, and my trademark has become my signature.
I am basically self taught, but I have always been a sponge when it comes to learning about something I am really interested in. I am a petroleum landman by trade, but my true passion lies in woodworking. I have read a lot of articles, watched basically every New Yankee Workshop episode, and countless how-to videos. About 2 ½ years ago, I stumbled upon LJ, there has not been one day since that I have not had this site up on my computer.
I have been so completely humbled by so many of the projects that I have seen on this website that I have not joined until this point, I did not believe that I could possibly have anything to offer such a diverse group of talented individuals. However, most of my inspiration in the last 2 ½ years has come from this site.
Shortly after Kent Shepherd and his son-in-law opened their tool store I met them, and we quickly became friends; I really bribed them with the money I spent in their store. Seriously, the whole family are great people, and my wife and I are blessed to have become a part of their lives. Kent has encouraged me on several occasions to formally become a member of LJ, but I chose to remain in the shadows until recently. Now, I figure if I can relate some of my thirty-three years of what NOT to do, maybe that could be beneficial to someone here and I should share that to give back some of what I have taken.
There are many of you that have become mentors to me, not only by the brilliant projects and blogs that you have posted, but by the giving and sharing spirit in which you participate in this site, and I am honored to become a part of that spirit.
