So it’s been a while. Yeah, sorry about that. Although I strive to be like my hero Steve Ramsey from WWMM and crank out a project all the time I find that the only time I really have the extra non-guilt-attached cash to spend on lumber is ar...

Well, first things first. I'm more of a tinkerer than a woodworker, but I have a bunch of saw blades, sand paper, glue, hands, and my head so who knows what might happen right? Plus, if all else fails it gives me an excuse to use my big ol' Shop Vac without looking like a loon. Then again though some would say I'm already pretty looney sans-Shop Vac. Truth be told one of my life-goals is to become that old "crazy" guy on the street that enjoys forests, the sky, and convincing his grandchildren pull his finger.
From before I could talk I've always been a techie. I grew up with this horrible affliction that made it so computer keys could fly under my command, but wrenches and the like never did quite fit in my hands. Ok, that's not true. Well yes I am a techie I was always just assigned to "light shiner" while growing up when it came time to doing any guy-stuff with my dad. So consider me stunted when it comes to all of this, but I've lurked on the Lumber Jocks site long enough to combat my social awkwardness into actually letting me register, and who knows what else. Maybe talk to others lol!
My motto is this: "Life is to serious to be taken seriously."
-- If you learn a lot from your mistakes then I must be a freakin' genius!

Considering the room is filled with other toys, and this one kept getting played with over the others, I’d say this was a success. Birthday girl seems to like it. Today is a good day to be alive. This is why I do things.
So after a couple more botched attempts at staining since my last blog update I went out and got some Krylon Brown Leather and this is what I have now…. What have I learned you may be wondering? Well you’re probably not wonderin...
Why, why, why, why, WHY do I think of all the best ways of doing stuff after I’ve already blown apart my first idea? It’s like I can see the future every freakin’ time, but it has to be fueled by making a mistake though. S...
