I have been dabbling with woodworking for 35+ years but I really decided to concentrate on woodworking as a serious hobby about 12 years ago. About tseven years ago I started to learning about hand tools. The local junior college has several courses that teach the use power tools and basic cabinetry. I have taken classes on sharpening and hand cutting dovetail joints. I am assembling a nice set of power and hand tools. When I get a shop and get it organized, I will show you around.
In April of 2015 my wife of 14 years decided to divorce me. This required me to sell the home with the two car garage that housed my shop. I really miss that shop.
I have been very very fortunate to find a lady who is as dedicated to me having a shop as I am to her having a house. Laura is an incredible lady and she consented to be my wife. So very soon, I'll be back in the shop.
I am an apprentice with Sierra Nevada Fine Furniture Makers guild. This is an amazingly talented group of guys that are helping me learn to be a serious woodworker. They are being very patient while I get my life back together.
