Location: Edmonton, Alberta

I have always loved the look and tactile feel of furniture, and grew up watching Norm every Sunday at dinner. Since then as space and money permits I have begun collecting tools with the intent of one day having the skills to use them. I'm happy to say that for each of the few projects I've completed I have noted an improvement in my craft so much so that the wife is even starting to ask me to build stuff for the house.
Each day I habitually look at each new project posted on Lumberjocks, and use it to serve as my inspiration, and the blogs as a virtual apprenticeship. I know that some of the world's premier craftsman are avid participants here and I thank each of you for sharing your craft secrets and ideas.
