I started woodworking at the urging of my wife. She did not like the long hours I spent on the computer. Now, after close to 8 years of woodworking I am addicted, and my wife... well, let's just say that she wishes I spent more time on the computer. Oh yeah, I think she is also getting tired of hearing me say, "I can build you one of those."
My woodworking so far has mainly been furniture and gifts. I am currently working on getting the shop more organized so that I can actually get something done when I am out there. My favorite style is Shaker and Craftsman.
I would like to get into a few other aspects of woodworking. I am getting set up to get into turning a little more, and I would like to start focusing on smaller projects sometime in the next couple of years. I have almost filled the house with furniture.
I love woodoworking for the relaxation it gives me. Noting like coming home from work, spending some time with the kids and then heading off to the shop. I especially love it when it is raining. I could work all night out there when there is a good rain.
