I'm a software engineer and an aspiring novice woodworker. My tool collection slowly started to grow around 2010. Around late 2013 I finally decided to kick all the other crap out of my garage and turn it into a small woodshop. As soon as the weather warmed up, I started cleaning up the garage and at the end of April I finally bought a table saw.

My woodworking focus right now is mostly on small, minimalist, practical projects. The end products don't look very good, but each one serves its purpose. Sadly, the fanciest is a simple point-of-sale iPad stand that I built with a circular saw, jigsaw, cordless drill, and not much else.

After drinking from the firehose at Weekend with WOOD 2014, I'm hoping to start making some projects that are meant to be looked at. It's probably wishful thinking, but we really need a new point-of-sale iPad stand for my wife's cupcake shop, and now I want to work some true compound dovetails and large coves into it.
