In 2004 FIL (Father-In-Law) came over to help me extend my deck. Prior to this, the most complicated thing I had put together was an IKEA bookcase. I was so pleased with the result that I put together a quick workbench to build more things. Every item got a little more complicated. And each time I purchased another tool or piece of equipment.

I also started taking more classes, reading books, and purchasing dvds. In the four years since, I have built furniture, cabinets, and jewelry boxes. In 2008, I finally added a lathe to my equipment collection to make fine custom pens in addition to bowls, goblets, and hollowed forms.
