More of a journal than a blog, I'd say. Alternately, introductions are annoying

I have heard that there are people of whom all manner of things will go awry for, chances are I have met plenty of them, of which none have stopped to share their story. I would suggest too that I am one of these people. At 23, I have experienced a significant amount of strife (if for a moment I may permit myself to play a martyr, more strife than you), all of which has led me here.

I don’t particularly wish to start this off with such an ominous tone, however I have long since come to realize that my life will be filled with very unusual challenges. Thankfully, I have also realized that the quality of such a life will be directly linked to a willfulness to, at the very least, attempt to overcome those challenges.

I don’t expect to post much new content into this blog any time soon, as the extent of my current tool collection includes a catalogue from Lee Valley, however I just might share a story, if for no one else than my future self to laugh at.

So join us next time, fearless reader, for our future installment entitled: Who’s to say I don’t create much of that aforementioned strife for myself. Alternately, hardheadedness and the effects of being damn sure that “I already knew how to do it”

I often sit and stare at various catalogs until the words begin to blur thinking about my dreamshop. Why oh why can I not be rich?

haha, stidrvr. i understand the staring till cross eyed… however we might differ, as i am obsessed with paring down my dream workshop to the bare essentials. most everything that i want to do can be done with some good chisels and a couple of hand saws

but that dosnt mean i dont aspire to own the entire festool line. such a contradiction

Have your say...
