Location: Richmond, Virginia

I’ve been watching NYW for a long time and have always been interested in furniture making as well as tools / shop stuff. I finally have the time and a little space to start building my tool set, learning how to work with wood and making some things for around the house / shop. I look forward to sharing my projects and soaking up all of the knowledge and feedback from the other jocks out here!
