I started woodworking at a two year apprenticeship in 2009 at R.V.P. 1875 Historical Furniture shop and Museum in Jefferson, IA to become a Cabinetmaker. There we were only allowed to use hand tools.
After I finished my apprenticeship I started my own business in 2014. I named my business Bare-Foot Woodworking. I enjoy making house hold furniture but, I really like making chairs. So I decided to become a chair maker. I mostly use green wood to make my chairs. I will take a job that involves the dryer side of wood but green is much more fun.
I still have a lot more to learn, but that's the fun in woodworking you can never learn enough.

One day I was needing a dovetail square, so I could just lay out my dovetails in the vise and then start cutting. At the moment I have to have the bourd stick out of the vise to high or take it out completely, so I decided to make one. All the squ...
