Location: Tupelo, MS
Started woodworking when I moved to Tupelo, MS from Jonesboro, AR in 2000. Didn't know anything about the hobby. The only tool I had was a Dollar Tree hammer. Learned most skills from New Yankee Workshop shows.
My shop is a double-car garage.
My projects include dressers, gun cabinets, cribs and cradles, toys, Barrister bookcases, and whatever catches my eye in magazines.
