Twenty years after a lackluster performance in high school woodshop class, I finally have the time, money, and space to set up my own workshop and tackle this hobby that has fascinated me all my life.

Yep, yet another newbie has joined the ranks.

When not imagining myself as a maestro in the workshop, my real life alter ego masquerades as a software development manager for a Native American casino; worlds apart, I know.

I'm married, have 3 children and 2 grand-children, have played guitar for 25 years, draw, paint, and generally love to do anything creative in nature.
