Website:

My name is Eric and I live in Nacogdoches, Texas. I was born and raised here before I moved to College Station, Texas where I attended Texas A&M University and studied Architecture and Design. I recently graduated in May of 2012 and moved back home where I am working in a small architecture firm in town. I have always been good with my hands and enjoyed working in my fathers general shop (not a woodworking shop). With my experience I began working in a wood and metal workshop owned by Texas A&M while I was in school. Eventually, after I became the Student Manager of the shop, I was able to acquire some extra time in the shop to do whatever I wanted to do. It was at that time when I began getting interested in woodworking. Once I graduated, I had to leave the wonderful A&M shop behind and I no longer had access to a Powermatic table saw, Festool Miter Saw, CNC Router and other amazing tools that are there. So, since I moved home I have slowly been building my workshop and acquiring tools with what spare money I had at the time. I still consider myself a beginner and am excited about learning more and more about this great hobby (hence the reason why I joined this site). Thanks for visiting my profile!

Wow I wish I had known if we had one, where it was, and how involved like a woodshop like that on my college campus. (Belated) welcome to LJs
