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.

Hey everyone, I want to thank you all for the gracious welcomes, and I hope that I can help out if anyone needs some help, and on the other hand, I am definitely appreciative of the vast amounts of knowledge floating around within the LJ community. I love the tool review section too, and I can’t wait to dig in and post some reviews in there. Happy woodworking to all!!!
