I've loved building things with wood as far back as I can remember but I didn't start seriously learning woodworking until 2003. My first project was an "heirloom cradle" that I saw online offered with plans, spindles and hardware (I made it for a friend who was having a baby...and finished it just in time for her baby shower). This started me on my downward spiral of purchasing many tools beginning with a "jobsite" tablesaw that folded up when I wasn't using it This was followed up by a planer, jointer, Miter Saw, Drill Press, a 3 section tool chest and "tons" of smaller tools that filled UP that tool chest. I soon found Marc Spagnuolo's site and one of the first (and most important to me), things I learned was that it's OK to make a mistake. It doesn't mean the project is ruined...adjust and keep going! This gave me the courage to step outside of my comfort zone and really learn some new things. In 2009 I purchased several DVDs from Charles Neil and after about 5 minutes or so of watching the first one, I knew this guy knew what he was talking about. I met Charles in person in March 2010 and have been back to his shop several times in the last year and a half. I consider him to be a very good friend and also my woodworking mentor. With the exception of my cutting boards, every piece I build has been (and still is), influenced by Charles Neil in one way or another.
