Woodworking began for me in an 8th grade industrial arts class. I made a serving tray, didn't understand how to use a plane at all ... and moved on. Woodworking really began for me in college. I worked in the scene shop of the theatre at the University of Missouri, and learned basic carpentry skills.
I built a plywood bookcase for our first apartment ... then a picnic table for our new house ... and woodworking then became a part of our home. I've made quite a bit of furniture over the last 25 years, including our kitchen cabinets, an entertainment center, desk, and more.
Skills keep improving, but I am a LONG way from having the skill to match my eye. It is about the journey....
2009 projects have included keepsake boxes, an occasional table and a blanket chest.
2011: Redwood outdoor buffets, Entertainment center, candle centerpieces.
2012: Credenza/entertainment center, baby cradle, BattleShots!
2013: An outdoor shed, baby blocks, routed bowls.
2014: Cheeseboards, cutting boards, picture frames, bookcases, retail & craft fair display pieces, candle holders.
