I'm married, as of 2014 I've been retired for 10 years. I have always loved wood, but didn't really get into woodworking until I was about 30 and needed to make a table for the kitchen in a new house. It sort of snowballed from there I guess.
I ended up seeing a Shopsmith demonstration at a mall and I knew I was hooked. I've used the same Shopsmith since 1984 and it's still like new today. I've mainly made small projects out of fine hardwoods ... everything from apple to zebrawood and about 75 in between. I've made everything from business card boxes to chess tables.
I'm a perfectionist, but I'm also just a non-professional who makes no claim of knowing the best ways to do things since I only know what works for me. I enjoy reading about wood, tools, techniques, etc and even watching Steve Ramsey videos on YouTube since he makes it interesting.
I expect to come here to look at others' projects, get expert advice when I need it, or even help give it if I think I can help someone.
