Hi all, I am a teacher of philosophy at a local university, but come from decidedly blue collar roots. I grew up smelling sawdust and inherited some of my grandfather's tools--all still in use :-)
I have two children and an understanding wife, but cannot justify spending any significant amount of money on this hobby yet. For this reason I use almost exclusively wood salvaged from the neighboring alleys (I have a small stash of red oak, maple, mahogany and mystery hard wood found this way.) I have also decided to buy all my first shop tools second hand and only at incredible deals scouring craigslist.
My aim is to pick up some basic skills I should have learned in my youth and to make some fun projects. Many of the things I produce are bit unorthodox for this site, but I have learned a lot from the people on here and want to contribute something.
Thanks for looking.
-- Mike Funke
