Location: Lees Summit, MO

I'm a busy husband, and father to three little girls.

I started working with wood as a kid. My dad gave me a little woodworking kit (small hammer, tiny hand saw, screwdrivers, etc) that I used for a long time to make guns and swords out of scrap wood. Later, when he let me use some of his tools I started nailing boards to trees in the woods. Some would call them tree houses, but I thought of them more as an Ewok village, complete with walkways and rope ladders and swings.

Then, I put the tools away for awhile. Got a driver's license. Went to college, twice, and met a girl. When I finally managed to pick up a hammer again it was to rebuild her garage which was about to rot over. Then came a new deck and patio. Then we got married and started having kids.

Four remodeled rooms later, we had our 100+ year old house how we wanted it... so we moved. Bought a house we can grow into, remodeled a few more rooms, found the KC Wood Workers Guild and started assembling my own shop. Now I have the tools I have always wanted.

So, after 30+ years, I am finally making stuff that I want to make. Now, if there were just about 10 more free hours in a day...
