Location: Woodstock, GA
I currently live in Woodstock, GA outside of Atlanta but I'm from New Orleans originally.
I've been woodworking about 3 years, starting out mostly with power tools but I've been gravitating more towards hand tools lately. I like the exercise I get with hand tools and the lack of noise, dust, danger and its just plane more fun. Feeding wood through machines is monotonous to me and I hate having to use a dust mask and eye protection, makes me feel like I'm working rather than practicing an art.
I look forward to meeting other woodworkers and sharing the knowledge gained along the way.
