Location: Minnesota

I started dabbling in woodworking about 2001. Having small kids I've really struggled finding the time I'd like to work on improving my skills and on projects. (Secretly, I'm hoping a little friendly peer pressure from LJ will help me get into the shop more.) I really like using hand tools, and try to work them into my work where it makes sense. Professionally I work on computers.

I've taken a hand-full of woodworking classes, most recently a really awesome one-week class at Inside Passage School of Fine Woodworking. I've gotten involved locally by volunteering to be the librarian for the Minnesota Woodworker's Guild.

Well, another year has rolled by. It must have been a really fun year because it seems like yesterday when I congratulated you on being a LJ for 2 years. Congratulations on your 3rd anniversary at Lumber Jocks. Thanks for helping make LJ a great place to visit and happy anniversary!
