I've been passively interested in woodworking for as long as I could remember. I remember watching New Yankee Workshop and thinking that someday I would like to get into this. As the years passed other hobbies seemed to take front seat but now at the age of 35 I have finally come to my senses and embraced my Inner Norm if you will. I work in the HVAC/R industry as a field technician and honestly love what I do. I have an odd obsession with tools and architecture.
