I have a passion for working with wood, so I am very carefull not to let it become a job. If it becomes a job, I will enjoy it less. I started working as a carpenter in high school (by chance) and found I loved it. Over the years, I worked for several contractors and gained valuable skills. Eventually, I started to veer into finer work and really fell in love with making furniture pieces and stuff for others. I would rather spend 12 hours in my shop making somethign for someone else than just about anything else. After 25 years of effort, I finally have a little extra space and my shop is starting to develop into a more usable space.
I have a lovely wife of almost 21 years. 3 kids of 21, 18 and 16.
