My name is Matt and i love wood working. I fell in love in Jr High with a woodworking class. I have had no other instruction or training other than that. I was never able to expand much after that becasue i had no tools and my dad was not into anything of the sort. I worked at a lumber yard for a while and was familiarized with a lot of different soft and hard woods. I was able to get more involved and use some of the equipment(table saw mainly) and my love for woodworking came back instantly. I have aquired some of my tools(jointer, bandsaw, spindle sander) from craigslist over the years to cut down on the cost. My table saw i got as a payment when i took on a project to build a vanity for my friends parents.
I have a mini lathe i bought from Rockler a while back and i turn pens and small things here an there. I got very interested in the carbide tools and thought i could get them a lot cheaper for us low budget people and still be a nice tool. Well i designed a tool for the most common carbide inserts i saw available which were the square and radius square inserts and got with machinest who makes them for me and i sell them on ebay for $36.00 with an insert. It makes for a fun project to turn your own handle!
Most recent i have been watching a lot of youtube channels to learn new techniques. I really enjoy watching all the neat projects and diversity of technique. It has really inspired me to bust out all my tools and start improving my abilities.
My tools have been in storage for a while due to living situations but I have an amazing boss and i have brought all my tools to work and pretty much have my own personal shop on the side of our building. I cant wait to clean it up and build and post projects that i do.
