Location: Halifax, Nova Scotia

I have been woodworking for about 10 years, however only the last 5 years have I been truly serious about it. I am married and we recently had a baby which has put a serious damper on my projects (but not in a bad way). I have been building projects for people for about 5 years but only until the last year have I made it a formal business. I am still only doing the cabinetry as a secondary job, my primary job is working at the local university as a cirriculum and web designer. (the pay is better and so are the benefits)

I been a lurker here at LumberJocks for about a year prior ti joining. I must admit I I was a little hesitant about blogging however I do see the appeal.

Welcome to Lumberjocks. The projects are an inspiration, the information is priceless and the people are supportive. The only problem is, the site can get addictive.

God Bless
