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.
-- I make sawdust. I think thats a fair assessment of my finished products!
