Well LJ’s, after a year of looking at the great items that everybody has posted on this site and doing a lot of reading I have decided that I want to take the next step. No I don’t want to go into business for myself, I want to improve my wood working skills. I have been enjoying this hobby for the last 15 years and have made a few things here and there that are in the house but it is no where near the quality that I see everyday on here. I have come to the conclusion that I need to learn how to build drawers the right way and not my way. To start planning things out on paper instead of just my head. I look forward to the day that I am able to post pictures of thiings that I feel are up to the quality that I see here everyday.
Thanks for the inspiration and all the wonderful information that everybody puts out on this website.
