Woodworking for me started as the "unskilled" help in home improvement projects done with family and friends. We would get together 2 or 3 times a year (6 to 8 of us) and do something to somebody's house.
Slowly I gained some general carpentry skills, and also got some inspiration from watching one of my brothers who is pretty talented in the wood working area.
Now I have a shop of my own (dedicated building) and am starting to produce pieces (some of which are of my own design). 2010 looks to be a break out year, hopefully taking my skills "to the next level".

Here is the finished product. If you look carefully you will see a small slot on the side of the front frame where we can slide different placards in and out depending on who is using the podium. If I was going to do another one, I would m...
