Location: Scotts Valley, Ca

I'm a Firefighter/Paramedic by trade, and a hobbyist woodworker. I'm always looking for inspiration from other woodworkers working in different styles, but I'm drawn to Arts and crafts or Mission style furniture, and specifically to Greene and Greene pieces these days.

Like many of you, I have a "shop" only in the sense that I have a garage full of tools. Lighting is inadequate, dust collection is a broom and a shopvac, and space is shared with bikes and surfboards and tax records from 1999 and all the other crap I just can't let go of.

Still, I'm blessed to have space and time, and the only real limitation is my own skill and vision, right?
