Location: Central Texas (a small town of about 200)

I have spent most of my life in central Tx, but am from Missouri. I enjoy cold weather, constructing things that I need but don't want to buy. Mostly because I like a challenge, nothing too challenging. I have a wife and two girls, and another on the way! Biking, hiking, rock climbing, camping, anything outdoors I love todo. As well as wood working, not the best "fine woodworking" but again, its a challenge. Hopefully I can show off some skills, but keep learning as well.

Graduated high school from Georgetown, tx then got a drafting/design degree from ITT (no longer around now). Worked for an architect. Recession (if you call it that) hit in '09 and got laid off. Decided that I wanted something more stable so I turned to healthcare. Started off low man on the totem pole and worked my way to a trainer. Now I work in IT healthcare and still get to do some training/education. Woodworking gets to fill in the voids that I dont' have working currently.

Most/all of the wood work, projects I do are from pallets. I have access to lots of free pallets and clean, sort, break down them and store them for future projects.

I like to diversify my work. Drafting and designing houses, working with wood, making tables, bookshelves, toy boxes. Having a wife and two girls, I love building them things that have value and meaning. Nowadays its hard to buy anything that way. I want to instill in my kids (girls) that if you want something you don't always need money to get it. If possible, try to make it, dont' have the tools, learn from someone and barter. Never stop learning.

Welcome to Lumberjocks, Justin! Six posts in eight hours … that’s what I like to see. Great introduction! Create a profile, post a project, and jump right into the conversation(s). Kudos. I hope you find this site as enjoyable as the rest of us. Again, welcome!
Been aboard an Abrams lately?
