Hi everyone and welcome to my blog!
i have been on the net since 1992, i have been a member of many forums of all types,
i have designed a few websites for myself and others and i hate to admit it that this is
my first blog. i just don’t know that much about them but from what i can tell its just an
electronic diary of sorts?

anyway, i’m 43 and retired on disability as a machinist. i used to be into golfing and also
competitive archery (SD indoor champ BHFS) but now i’m just a woodcrafting newbie!

i have slowly been gathering machines and tools since this spring and my shop is a work
in progress, lots of stuff to get done before winter arrives. please check out my workshop
page to see a few pics and a list of my gear.

i really look forward to learning a lot here and getting to know and hopefully making friends
with a lot of you! so please stop and say a quick hello and mention where your from.

hey chunk, nice to meet someone close. lemars isnt real close but in the world of the net, its close so thats cool.
are you a member of the siouxland woodworkers club? i joined up a month ago and met some great people but not being in sioux city its hard to hook up with anyone or have them over to hang out.
i will have to check your album to see if you have any pics of your shop. hope to chat sometime.

Glad to have you in the shop. Good luck in getting all of the new skills honed along with some chisles and planes.
