I started getting the woodworking bug about 8 years ago. My father in law has made all of his furniture in his house and I was and still am in awe over some of the pieces.

After finally jumping into my first "big" project, my fireplace mantel, I definitely got hooked. I started making cutting boards after that. I went and bought a nice planer and then there it sat for about 3 years. Never really getting any use at all. All my woodworking tools actually didn't get much use for a while. Starting a family had become a priority, so hobbies took a back seat.

Well now that my family is well underway, and I still don't have as much time as I would like to have, I have started up again. Right now I'm only making cutting boards for family and friends, and special orders. Not outrageous just plain old boards. After joining this site and seeing all the beautiful work that people do, I am less afraid of starting very involved projects. Hope you will enjoy what I will be posting from now on.
