I started off helping a friend of my parents build houses as a summer job when I was a kid. I continued to build houses off and on until I ended up in Richmond VA, at VCU. I began to restore the old homes around the campus. After several years of doing this I went to work for a cabinet man who trained me to run his shop. I did this for the better part of 10 years. Now I stay at home and take care of my children. My wife was generous enough to let me have the garage as a shop and I have slowly been filling it with tools. As a cabinet man I began by getting the large power tools I felt I would need. I have spent my time making small boxes and learning to carve. I am finding that I enjoy learning how to use hand tools more than I ever had in the past. And so my adventure continues.....

Let us begin with an apology for not being really active. It’s be crazy around my way. My son had pneumonia and was out of school for 8 weeks. I became a third grade teacher for a while. I won’t even get into how many things I don&...
I thought I would share the picture of my table at the small art show I was in last weekend. While this show seemed a bit slower than the one in the spring, but I still did rather well. I had hoped to sell a few more boxes, but I try to go...
WARNING This is part of the over all project so I believe it belongs in this blog. It is not woodworking unless you count the piece of driftwood I had to cut a couple of pieces off of. First, I painted the back of the tank. We have move pa...
I have been threatening to do it, and now I finally have. We have a friend who works in a fish store. We were there the other day looking at fish and explaining to him that we were looking for a 125 gallon tank. The one they had at the store wa...
