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.

Thanks, everyone for such a kindhearted welcome. Just trying to figure out how to post photos in response to Mochoa’s self-made mallet.

Just wanted to say that the Vietnamese mallet is very slightly tapered and the craftsman demonstrated finer carving work undertaken with the lighter end of the mallet.
I teach in China and Asian craftsmanship makes for a very interesting study.
Again, thanks to such a warm welcome aboard!
