This video was just too funny not to share. For those that have already seen this, my apologies, but I just couldn’t resist. It was apparently created by Nathan Rench of August Oak Woodworks in Temecula, CA. He said he seemed to always ru...

Using tools and fixing things around the house has been a regular part of my life for many years. But it was only about 2 years ago I became interested in serious woodworking – and only in the last year that I began trying some of the more challenging things I've seen or read about. And boy do I have a lot more to learn! I’m humbled by the vast talents of all of the other "jocks" in this community and hope that one day I’ll have honed my skills to the point where other jocks might be occasionally impressed.
I’m married (for 30+ years) to the most wonderful person in my life – and she’s continually encouraging me and is very supportive of this crazy and intriguing hobby of mine. We have 2 grown children – both live in other parts of the country.
Other than woodworking, I also enjoy golf and bluegrass music. I haven’t yet decided whether or not I'm retired or plan to anytime soon. My wife and I recently relocated to Hutchinson, KS to be closer to family. I'm using this opportunity to upgrade my shop. With roughly 4 times the space I had previously, I've got a lot of work to do getting the unfinished basement space turned into a workable shop. I'll post photos once the current mess starts to come together.
I always learn new skills and techniques from everyone on Lumberjocks and hope to share whatever humble skills I’ve managed to acquire.
