I really enjoy making things. When I was a kid, I didn't have much toys, so I learned to make things out of cardboard and paper. Now, I make practical things out of wood because I feel like I should justify my time in the shop. I am taught by my surroundings since I have no formal training in anything that is of use to me. Everywhere I go I look at designs, break it down and appreciate them. I then add those ideas to my projects which is the physical interpretation of my surroundings.
I just have a knack to make things without too much planning nor concerns. Every mistake is a learning opportunity. So I don't take my woodworking too seriously. Which is also why I have just enough tools to get the job done. I keep it fun that way.

I pushed that orange cart down the main race way of the local Home Depot heading toward the tool coral. There’s nothing I really need there, it’s just part of the routine I supposed. I bumped into Don who works at the appliance section. “What...
I was able to use my new workbench the other day to modify a cabinet door for a client. I did this favor so that I can test out my new bench. This opportunity gave me a chance to see the workability of the piece and what I need to build or modif...
My plan today was to build a workbench for the new workshop. I had the day to myself and wanted to get the thing built before I had to start dinner. This is actually a lofty goal since I had no idea what I was building. I didn’t plan much, I st...
Things are finally coming together in my new place. I moved to my new house three weeks ago and had been working hard to get to the point where I can start on my workshop. Here’s the result of last night’s work. Fresh paint went on the walls af...
