I am an avid hobby woodworker looking to start my own business someday. For now, I make my living programming computers. I love making traditional, 18th century style furniture, particularly Queen Anne, Chippendale and Shaker. I long to try my hand at several other styles, including Federal and Hepplewhite. However, I'm not particularly fond of Mission (Arts & Crafts).
My favorite aspect of woodworking is carving and hand-shaping furniture elements. I like turning project parts, but I'm not much into turning just for the sake of turning. I particularly HATE hand sanding, but it's a necessary evil for all projects, so I'm trying to overcome my disdain.
I taught myself pretty much everything I know about this craft. I truly enjoy doing it, and look for excuses to make new stuff. Each time I start a new project, I try to incorporate a new technique into each design so that I can stretch my skill set further.
Some things I have yet to try, but would like to:
- Steam Bending
-- Being nice gets you stuff!
