My name is Randy. I've been working wood for about a year now. I have a beautiful wife, and 3 kids. I am 32 years old and have spent all of my adult life working in the oil patch. I have a degree in humanities with a minor in history. My wife just finished her bachelor in social work and was recently accepted into the Texas Tech School of Law. Life is often hectic with so much going on, and woodworking has allowed me to find some peace.

I have had no instruction on woodworking, so I am having to teach myself. Most of everything i have learned has been through online sources, magazines, and trial and error. I have gotten a lot of ideas from this site and I always enjoy viewing the creations of others.

If anyone has any questions about me or my projects, feel free to contact me.

Andrew to your question on my entertainment armoir…
Oh yeah, the finish,
I believe I mixed minwax stains, the red oak and the red mohagony about even then a splash of dark walnut. All finished with my nemisis Gloss poly, Seems like every project I do is finished in the dead of Minnesota winter. I play in my unheated mancave, and move the wifes minivan into the driveway. I do have 2 little electric heaters that look like oscillating fans, as long as I have them 2 feet under and away from the project things are usually at least 50 degrees, but most projects have 4 sides. Really slow drying for an impatient dude like me, I usually rush something. At least I know the problem.
Thanks for stopping by.
