I'm an amateur woodworker with a lifetime of practical experience.
Started off in dads shop as a child, moved on to my own, strayed away for MANY years to the dark side with metal working and vehicle mechanics.
Recently inherited my fathers (and grandfathers) full shop full of tools, built from his lifetime passion of building, woodworking, cabinet making etc...
Inevitably that passion rubbed off on me, and I can only hope to be able to honor his memory with some works that will be used for generations to come.
I think I have a good foundation, and the folks on this website are a valuable resource to help with my development.

Oak Drawer I made for my girlfriends “art” desk.The desk is oak, unknown age, she is having it refinished.The original drawer was missing, so I made a LARGE full depth drawer with modern drawer hardware from solid oak with a luan b...
