Few years ago I had to find a hobby to replace a bad habit I was getting very sick from. I made a portable forced air torch with a air mattress pump , steel pipe and a small propane bottle with propane attachment. I got the idea of a big torch from YouTube but the design and mobility of mine in particular was something I came up with through good old fashion tinkering. When I finished it of course I wanted to test it out. A friend brought over some live edge pine slabs ,( I'm not really sure why) and I figured that was a good piece of wood to try out my new torch on. I wanted to see how fast I could catch that piece of wood on fire. When I first touched the wood with the flame I instantly loved the way it looked from the wood grain lines being distinguished from the rest. So instead of burning it to ashes I lightly torched the rest of the slab to bring out the lines, put on some varnish that I found in the shed and made a shelf out of it. I was hooked from there on. That is how I got started in woodworking and a new hobby that keeps my mind in the right place. I have made lots of things and learned from each and every one of them. Using only common knowledge from over the years and my strong ability to learn and adapt as I go i have impressed many. I think a lot of that is because nobody including myself had any idea that I was capable of creating anything beautiful at all other than my daughter (who is my biggest fan). She calls me a inventor. Although I have made some pretty cool things that look awesome to some , it would be naive of me to say that I dont need outside knowledge from woodworkers who actually know what they're doing. I am anxious to learn everything I can from the Lumberjocks so I can heighten the already happy responses to a whole new level.
