I have been doing carpentry with my dad since i was about five years old - way back... in 1990. :D
I always loved doing stuff with my hands, it was a nice way to get away from homework and other daily rituals and just throw some wood together with my dad. Fast forward and I still continue to this day, using the tools in my own workshop to try to create gifts for the ones I care about, and maybe make a buck or two on the side to help pay for what has remained an expensive habit.
I joined this site about 2 years ago, loving all of the neat things people were making with their lathes, and what they were doing with their pieces of scrap. My ex-wife was never very encouraging to me, and right before we separated she would tell me how crappy my work was, pointing out all the things that were wrong with what I was making, so I stopped sharing. That was a mistake that I won't make again, I want to share my masterpieces with all of you, even if they are flawed top to bottom. I want to learn, I want to grow, and I want your opinions on how I'm doing. I have since remarried, and my current wife loves to watch me get better at using the tools I have, and occasionally spoils me with a new tool here and there. Stay tuned, I have much to share!
