Its an old family curse, going back over 3 generations. I learned woodworking from my Grandfather. I grew up spending hours in my GrandDad's shop, he owned a furniture store in a little town in N.D. refinishing antiques and building his own designs. While in the non-woodworking rest of the world, I could always feel the pull of the sawdust and would dabble here and there. Now as I grow a little older and wiser, I am starting to plan out where I want to be in a few years. My goal is to build up my shop with the tools I will need to start up a custom shop up. I am slowly adding tools as I can afford them and . I have completed a couple of commissions already for some friends and have taken on some repair and refinishing work.
I now have infected others in my family, my brother Adrian (lazyfiremaninTN) and his wife (Pinkhandcuffgirl, BTW she is in law enforcement) and last but certainly not least, tennesseefan (Adrian's son)
I look forward to the day when I can move back to TN and set up shop with my brother. As soon as the housing market improves in my area, I'm on my way.

Well, what a way to start the new year. My son and his girlfriend had a baby girl at 10:20 this morning. 7lbs, 13oz. They have named her Rylee Ann. But it strikes me that even after the all the denial (I’m too young, he’s too young,...
