Hi All,

I am a 27 years old software engineer from Northern New Jersey. I am engaged to be married in October 2014.

Some other hobbies include my motorcycle (riding and working on it), video games, and I read a lot but I'm not sure if that's really a hobby.

I took Intro to Woodshop in highschool over 10 years ago and I remember liking it a lot. Unfortunately, I couldn't take part 2 of that course because I needed to fill another requirement for college applications at the time.

I finally have some space in my living quarters after living with my mom for a few years after college and then right to an apartment. Now that we have a garage and some space, I decided I wanted to pursue this hobby.

I've since picked up a plethora of used and new tools and I've been eating up anything wood working related I can find. I've amassed quite a collection of magazines, online videos, PDFs, PodCasts, and just other wood worker's work.

I am trying to expand my skill repertoire and I love trying new things whenever I can in the shop.

As a software engineer with a sometimes 3-hour daily commute, if I'm not careful, I can end up sitting down for upwards of 12 hours a day (before even factoring in sleep). I love wood working because it gets me moving around a bit instead of sitting at rest all day. Not to mention there is nothing like that feeling of creating something with your hands. A lot of my work, although fulfilling in it's own rights, is abstract. There is something unique and _authentic_ about wood working which I truly love.

I'm happy to have found LJs. Everyone seems very friendly and I'm anxious to participate and give back to the community where I can.
