I'm a chef by trade, historian by education, philosopher by inclination, and pretty much a total newbie to the fine manual arts. Best gig I can find these days is seasonal, and so I spend my winters spending as little as possible and reading as much as possible. But even when I am working, I'm always trying to learn something new: a few winters back I taught myself a thing or two about antenna science, winter after that I built myself a greenhouse in the back porch and learned how to manage it--this winter I'm finally realizing my dream of setting up an ACTUAL WORKING SHOP!

You see, I recently married the woman of my dreams (bear with me here). It was an amazing experience for all the usual reasons, but the unusual part is that rather than wedding presents, we asked for help putting on the big show, so apart from a couple of girls hired to wash dishes, everything was done by friends and family--and we still managed to have a good time!

More to the point, we invited some woodworkers. And they blessed us with some absolutely beautiful work--things that we'll treasure for the rest of our lives. And this inspired me: while I don't (really) know how to build things, I'm always thinking about things that would be cool to make: a shelf here, a tool there, a giant spider robot over there.... it's hard to describe just how amazing it was to watch these talented woodworkers take an idea and make it a reality.

So... that's why I'm here.
