As a kid I spent many hours in front of the TV watching The Woodwright’s Shop, The New Yankee Workshop, and This Old House. I’m not sure if these shows started my desire to build things but they were certainly a catalyst for me to start woodworking. I didn’t have access to the tools they used or the means to start woodworking at a young age. Looking back I think I was just fascinated by woodworking in general and simply watched these shows for the entertainment value.

When I reached high school I was finally able to explore woodworking first hand and I embraced the opportunity. I quickly developed a rapport with my high school woodworking instructor and spent much of my free time in the wood shop designing and building furniture. I continued my woodworking education remodeling homes as a carpenter throughout my high school weekends and summers, which continued into my college years.

My desires to design and build has lead me down the path of becoming an engineer, which is what I now do for a living. After moving around and traveling extensively for about 15 years, my wife and I finally decided to settle down and purchase a home in 2011 with a 1000 sq. ft. detached workshop. The dedicated shop space provides a great deal of inspiration and has facilitated my path back into woodworking.

As an aspiring furniture maker, I am continually reminded about how much I have enjoyed and continue to enjoy watching Roy, Norm, and the folks with This Old House; without them I probably wouldn’t be woodworking today. In an effort to keep the proverbial torch alive, my wife and I have decided to start The Sonoran Woodshop. Our goal is to provide ideas and inspiration for your woodworking projects, but more importantly we hope to inspire woodworking.
