I erased the first line in this blog 6 times already. I can’t seem to decide if I want to be funny, serious, or both when in fact, I’m neither.
Anyway this is supposed to be a woodworking blog about me and my experiances so I think I will just stick to that, OK?
So after about 5 years now, I have decided to get back into woodworking again. I have always been into woodworking since I was about 10 years old. I used to build tree forts and all kinds of structures when I was a kid. In junior high I took a woodshop class and made a magazine table / rack out of pine. High school, made a few things but the most impressive was a set of cherry salad bowls.
I worked as a caprenter’s laborer for 3 summers in New Jersey where I grew up. This was after high school and during my college years. Mostly stick built homes, some masonry, and finish carpentry. Oh college, yeah it was Chemistry, and now I’m a software developer; go figure.
The starte to acquire more and more tools over the years, used to build decks and sheds on the weekends for extra cash, met a beautful woman and got married. Made a nce bookcase which will be the bais for most of my projects moving forward. I’ll have to finds some pictures of that and post them.
Hope you enjoy this, I’m going to stop now but I’ll be back. The main reson I’m writing this blog and sharing my woodworkng projects is to share them with my family and friends so they too can be apart of the process (um, frustration) and not just the beauiful piees I turn out.
Hope you enjoy this.
