I am just learning the art of woodworking. I have always admired other peoples craftsmanship and a few months ago decided I wanted to learn the craft. I have a wife (Renee) and two sons (Ethan age 2), and (Gabrial age 1) and now my wife and I are expecting another child in July. I served for 6 years in the active duty Army were I was deployed to Iraq and Afghanistan most of the time so coming back from my last deployment me and my wife started our family and just have not stopped since. I am currently a Drill Sergeant for the Army Reserves (yes there are DS's in the Reserves). My actual profession is as a Flooring Installer. I work for a commercial shop were we install every type of flooring ever invented. I am in the union so it pays well and provides nice benefits, and being a commercial installer I get to work at some really cool places and meet alot of people. I joined this site so that I could learn from all of you who are much better at woodworking as well as hopefully get some good ideas. My goal is to be able to someday replace all the furniture in my house (most of which is stuff made of particle board from walmart) with beautiful pieces that I can proudly showcase and enjoy. I have no desire to make a living from woodworking but it sure does come in handy for gifts. Anyway thats me in a nut shell thanks for reading.
