Location: springfield mo

I’m a Machinist by trade and I’ve done what I would call carpentry work for years with rebuilding my old house and working on friends projects from time to time. I’ve just recently gotten the chance to slow down and do more woodworking. I’ve really grown a love for doing everything by hand. With a recent move my wife and I are downsizing for my health. I find myself without a shop instead I have part of a 1 car garage and the carport. Life will be interesting and it’s never short on surprises.

-- If life was simpler Id probably have even less time to do what I wanted
