Thanks guys. My name is Tom Heppermann and I’ve been viewing all of the projects that have come across LJ for the past few months and I am astonished by all of the great work. I’m a hobby woodworker that has recently moved to Grand Rapids. I’ve been working out of my basement, yeah, I took control of practically the entire thing. I have been woodworking off and on for about 8 years at my parents house through high school and college. I have finally graduated and moved into a house where I can spend more time making sawdust (of course when I am not working or spending time with the mrs).

I’ve got a decent shop including a Delta tablesaw, Jet planer, Dewalt scroll saw, Dewalt miter saw, dust collector and quite a few hand tools.

I’ve made many projects and I will be posting them whenever I can.
Thanks for the welcomes and letting me introduce myself.

Humm thepps,
Amazing to say the least, and built indoors as well, I need you to send me your address, for one I want to come see how somebody can have such a huge workshop for a start, then I want to examine all the fine joinery you have used, I have heard of dovetail joinery but that’s exceptional, then the jigs you used to make it all and finally a dip in the pool!
