I'm currently a computer systems infrastructure architect at TCCC with a woodworking hobby that began 20 years ago. My 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 the corporate environment 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 of 21 years 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 youngest is 11 and likes to hang with me in the shop. She has already learned to work wood with drill press, handsaws, table saw (mostly hidden dados with hovering Dad for over site) and of course sand paper, files and chisels.
My friend at the local woodworking store encouraged me to join Lumberjocks and start posting. I'm looking forward to it, so here goes...
