Like many, I came here for a resource of knowledge, inspiration, and entertainment. I have always enjoyed doing home projects, more specifically working with wood. If the project name is tiling, I despise you.

Growing up it started with bird houses, pinewood derby, and shop class. Now an adult with young children, my time is their time and projects revolve around them or the house. I started with a simple bed and shelves and onto a 12’ tabletop. I now want to get into more traditional furniture and coming here was an easy step in that direction.
