I began woodworking in June 2012 on Father's Day weekend as a way to reduce stress from life in general, but mostly from my job. My first project was a worktable built from plans on woodworking.about.com (I built it that same weekend). I found that I loved woodworking more than I thought I would and now don't want to stop and have thus taken over our 2-car garage, slowly amassing as many tools as I can find. I have had a lot of help from some very generous people.
It's slow going due to my job and duties as a father and husband, but as long as I get to spend some time in the shop on a regular basis, I'm OK.
I have worked in the tire industry since 2006 and have been a musician my whole life. For years I thought being a musician would turn into a career, but it never worked out, so now I just play random gigs here and there for friends.
I also have started making woodworking videos on YouTube. My channel is at YouTube.com/cmrwoodworks .
