I took 2 semesters of woodshop in high school and loved it! I am so thankful for Mr O'Neal teaching me the basics of safety and woodworking.
I got into woodworking by way of building RC model airplanes. I have been expanding my tools and equipment as I continue to work on projects.
In 2010, I would like to experiment with bent wood lamination, building a vacuum press, and possibly an acoustic guitar.
** UPDATE 5/25/12 ** So I did some bent wood lamination as part of the crib project. I do have a vacuum press and I enjoy veneering. I still have not attempted an acoustic guitar, although I am the middle of an electric guitar build. I am much closer to my dream project which is a grandfather clock (I have the clock hardware and components).

So as part of a Murphy bed build, I wanted to incorporate a fold up (or hide away) ironing board. I have seen these at Lowes and Home Deport starting off about $168. They don’t look that hard to build and I sure think I could save some mone...
