Well, just about a week or two after I finally got around to shooting a shop tour video, I decided to finally purchase a drum sander which forced me to rearrange the shop. Of course, since I knew that changes were coming, I also decided it was as...

Life is too short to waste time, get out there and live your passions.
I started woodworking in my 2 car garage when I lived in Las Vegas, and I absorbed every bit of woodworking knowledge I could. It all started when I decided to build my own office in our house... only problem was not knowing how to do it. I learned everything I could that would teach me how to build cabinets.
Once I started learning, I wanted more! I kept learning, and thankfully people like David Marks, Marc Spagnuolo, Tommy Mac, Matt Vanderlist, and so many more were out there ready to help me along.
Funny thing is, I never even built that office furniture. We scrapped that idea when my wife and I admitted that we probably weren't going to work in that room. I did, however, construct a built-in window seat/storage/desk in that house. It turned out great, then we moved!
After the crash in 2008, I lost my job as an appraiser and decided to see if I could make a living at woodworking. We eventually moved to Northern Nevada to be closer to family, and I'm still operating a woodworking business.
Now, I work alongside my Dad, a machinist, in his shop. Between the two of us, we pack quite a selection of tools and machines. It allows me to delve into different materials and different skills to do some amazing things.
Now, I am driven by my creativity. It may pay less than my former job, but I love it! So, I plan to keep trying, learning, and now sharing as much as I can.
-- I don't make mistakes, I make design challenges!

I recently posted a picture frame project that I built for charity, and I included a photo of the cove jig that I used to create the profile on the frame. Since I got some questions about the jig, I decided to shoot a quick video that covers the ...
Howdy all, I just wanted to reintroduce myself here, I joined LJ many years ago and sadly didn’t do anything but lurk. I’m really putting forth an effort to get more involved with the community and share as much as I can from my shop....
