I am a military man trying to raise a family and I do woodworking both for the enjoyment of it and for a sanity check. I started with woodworking in 2009 with a P-51 pedal plane project, which I was so proud of and it started the urge to look for other things to build. It was a very proud achievement to be able to craft something from start to finish.
I started amassing tools at that time, mainly hand tools. I had simple hand tools to build that pedal plane, but soon I wanted to build something else. I found that it was sort of a gateway drug.
I was in flight training learning to become a pilot over the course of the following few years, and while I still had the interest, I lacked the time and resources to build more projects. Once I earned my wings, and a subsequent move to a place with ample space to woodwork, I bought a inexpensive 10" table saw, and the building continued. I have since built a red oak wagon, a ducky stool for my daughter to aid in potty training, a rocking horse, a stick or hobby horse, board games, and many other odds and ends.
I found this website almost on accident, but I'm glad to now be a part of it. Seeing some of the projects is really inspiring me to build more.

Wow, hey! Thanks gents! This is such a great websites. It really helps invigorate those creative juices seeing all of the other projects out there. I have to say thank you to Steve Ramsey for his links that lead me here. His videos are great. When I get off deployment, I have a few ideas in mind on some builds. Hopefully I’ll post more when I can! Thanks for the warm welcomes folks!

Scott, I’ve got to say you’ve got some lucky kids. Your projects are going to give them some warm memories that are going to last their whole lives.

BTW, I deduce that you’re at NAS Whidbey. I spent time up there a couple years ago on some construction projects. Spent one winter running duct bank along the beach up to the North gate. I don’t know what it’s like inside one of those Prowlers but I’ll tell ‘ya they’re damn loud when they’re coming in 50 feet over you’re head. Although the few seconds of heat from the engines as they went by did feel good on a blustery November day. :)

Have your say...
