Location: Chicago, IL

I am an engineer by trade and work in my home shop as a hobbiest. I've been wood working since childhood with my Dad. While I was in college, I worked for my Uncle as a carpenter and plumber.

I am often inspired by something I see on the street, at work, on TV, or on line. Then I go and build it. When I am working in my shop, I am lost in my own world and never happier.

My shop is in the basement of our building, about 12' square and doubles as a laundry room. We live in an apartment with small and odd sized rooms, so I just build furniture to suit. Hope you enjoy the postings from this dumb Chicago polock!
