Came back to woodworking after ending a lousy domestic situation. I've been blessed now with the world's best wife, and a well equipped shop. Hopefully I can get back up to speed skills wise...
Wood shop for me was one of the few classes in Junior High and High School that I actually enjoyed, and looked forward to. I built a lot of projects back then, everything from coat trees and kitchen tables to convex curved gluelams for skateboards. From 1987 to 2004 my total woodworking projects consisted of building a replacement dinette table / berth base for a rented travel trailer (it was cheaper to buy the router, bits, and cheap router table and do it myself in the time I had left than it was to buy a pre made piece, when all was said and done noone could tell...) some fence repairs on my house, and a strong tie and 2x4 workbench. Since restarting I have made countless bowls, spindles, boxes, step stools, toy cars and whatnot. Only very few of them worth talking about, but I am loving it. I really only started in earnest in early 2008, and have been getting in as much shop time as I can.
I am a system administrator by day, and do woodworking and other DIY pursuits for a creative outlet and stress relief.
