Website:

Self taught woodworker with an insatiable appetite for knowledge. Been involved in the building trades for around 17 years, but just now starting to take furniture building seriously. I work for Amtrak by trade, and build furniture by night (and weekends). What started off as a side honny has turned into a side business. I'm now slowly...Let me repeat. Slowly trying to muild a brand and provide people with real American made, high end craftsmanship you just can't buy at Target.
I started off with a 30 dollar Ryobi Jig saw. Now my shop, while always growing and improving, is pretty much fully equipped (minus some tools I would consider total luxury items, ie: Mortiser, better dust collection).
Joined this site to see how like minded minds would handle situations that arise in everyday woodworking, and hopefully retain some useful knowledge from some of the real pros and veterans of the trade. And of course, while I am completely self taught (besides on the job training, and going to a vocational highschool for building trades), I am always willing to share what I do know.
I like to make mistakes to learn the proper way to do things. The "Ahah!" moments, while trying to figure out how to solve a complex problem, are what keeps me excited and push me to keep going. Taking lumps (like accidentally ruining a finish or something), to me, is a rite of passage. I'm almost all paid up.
