Hi Everyone,

My woodworking hobby began years ago. Tree forts until 14 years old. Teen career was in home construction framing; mostly I enjoyed building the trey ceilings and roofs with many ridge lines. So, when my second career's auto mechanic's toolbox was stolen I decided to use the insurance proceeds to purchase woodworking tools. Every since I've been hooked on the sport. It is great therapy and a break from work where I spend too many hours each day.

I love every piece of wood and tree. I love tools. I love the idea that some piece of wood or tool will last for 100s of years if cared for by someone with appreciation.

My wife and two girls are very supportive and enjoy receiving output from the workshop in the basement. I've accomplished desks for each, coffee tables, bookshelves, nightstands, boxes, and cabinets of many varieties.

My friend at the local woodworking store encouraged me to join Lumberjocks and start posting. I'm looking forward to it, so here goes...
