Location: North Alabama

I am relatively new to woodworking, although I have been around it since I was a boy. My Dad had a nice workshop in our backyard and is an accomplished cabinet maker/furniture maker.

My Mom and Dad have recently moved to my location from Huntsville and built a shop this time. Luckily, I had built just the place to store and use all his woodworking tools and equipment.

Which brings you all up to speed. I repaired and cleaned up a MarkV SS that belonged to my wife's grandfather and was slowly rotting away in my F-I-L's shop. So that has become my lathe. I enjoy all types of woodworking, from cabinet making to pen turning and the gamut in between. I like to think I approach woodworking with a "i wonder if this is possible" attitude. I am extremely driven when I get an idea in my head and won't stop trying until i've proven that it cant be done.

I enjoy turning more than anything else recently, it's gotta be the instant gratification thing. I am also very bad to see a tool and want it immediately. I like gadgets and useful items, so my wallet tends to suffer from this hobby!

I hope that i can learn volumes about woodworking from the members here, and maybe contribute on occasion.
