Location: Fort Worth, Tx.

I started doing wood working because a friend told me that I could never build something as good as a master craftsman friend of ours. That was about 3 years ago and I was sucked in by the creative outlet.Most projects I create usually come from a cross between a necessity and Adam Wells (my neighbor) and my self drinking in the shop late at night and saying "You know what would be cool?". (Which is the wood workers equivalent of a redneck saying Hey guys watch this!)

Disclaimer: We are professional highly trained drinkers and recomend that you never try this in your shop.

Almost a year ago I purchased a Jet Midi lathe with a little apprehention and have since become adddicted to it like a crack addict. Lol So most of my projects these days are turned on my lathe, however i still occasionaly build flat projects.

I am constantly trying to push my abilities by creating things that I have not seen and trying techniques that I have never tried.
