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 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 enjoyed watching 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 report with my woodworking instructor and spent much of my free time in the wood shop building and designing furniture. In my junior year I started spending my summers and weekends working with a carpenter remodeling homes, which I continued during my college years.

My desires to design and build lead me down the path of becoming an engineer, which is what I now do for a living. I have moved around and traveled extensively for work over the last 15 years; however, my wife and I finally decided to settle down and purchase a home last year. During our search the one criteria we had was to have a workshop or enough land to build one, so I could get back into woodworking. We were very fortunate to find and purchase a home that has a 1000 sq ft workshop, which I have been putting together over the last year.

My desire to get back into the shop has been strong and I’m excited to be making sawdust again. As I get back into woodworking, I am continually reminded about how much I 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, I have decided to start an online woodworking podcast called The Sonoran Woodshop ( My goal is to provide ideas and inspiration for your woodshop, but more importantly I hope to inspire woodworking.
