Location: St. John's, Newfoundland, Canada

My name is Chris, I am 23 years old and I am employed at a local cabinet shop (the projects posted here are ones that I have made myself in my own shop, not at work). Woodworking has been a hobby of mine for quite some time now. I started off in a little community called Lawn, it’s near St. Lawrence on the Burin Peninsula in Newfoundland, Canada. There I went around with my uncle, a “jack of all trades” helping him with odd-jobs. I have been doing this for as long as I can remember, I continue to do it to this day on weekends and when I get some time off work. It was only in the last five years or so that I really got into finish woodworking. This is by far what I enjoy the most. I have been expanding my shop by purchasing more tools to better suit the task at hand and building a good base to eventually branch out on my own running a cabinetmaking shop.
