I'm just getting back into woodworking after a nearly 10-year break. At the time family life took up most of my time and I just wasn't able to spend enough time in the shop to justify the cost.

However now with my daughter in university I've got lots more time. I'm converting my 2-car garage into a dedicated workshop and starting to learn again.

My main interests right now are furniture building and decorative boxes. Basically items that can show off the beauty of solid wood and craftsmanship.
