So just a few words about me. I usually let my projects do my talking. I got into woodworking as a necessity. Married very young in life with very little money and three young children. I found making furniture for my children very rewarding. The skills came eazy it was the tools that were expensive and hard to justify. Consequently I bought a lot of second hand stuff. But that was ok, It was a great learning experience. And not once did my wife ever say we can't afford that. What a great woman, I still have her to this day. So lets fast forward a few years [quite a few] and a few hundred projects later to the present. I'm a semi retired heavy duty mechanic. I have a 500 sq. ft. shop and this woodworking thing is an obsession. I spend most of my winter time in my shop and summer days on the golf course. My children are all grown up and married and have blessed my wife and I with five beautiful grand children.So its started all over again. Making furniture for my grand children. Life has blessed me in so many ways. Anyway,back to more interesting stuff. I would characterize myself as avid amateur/semi professional. I do commission work about four times a year. I do a lot of gifts But mostly I make things for my famely. As i'm sure many of the people here will attest that there is no greater pleasure than to give someone a gift that you made with your own hands. I believe this woodworking hobby we all have is about the most popular thing going. Iv'e met many interesting people through this and I invite all to contact me for a good exchange of ideas or to just chat. I can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org sincerely Denis [grumpy749] Yesterday is history, tomorrow is a mystery, but today is a gift. That's why it is called '' the present''...... Pink.
