Hello, my name is Tim. I live near Springfield, Tennessee with my wife Dawn and son Samuel. I grew up in the woodshop, my Dad was a woodworker from my earliest memories. I was always welcome in his shop as a child and certainly ruined a lot more wood than he ever complained about. He taught me alot about hard, honest work and the pride and satisfaction that comes from making something yourself. I guess you can say I was bitten by the woodworkers bug at an early age as he was and now I'm passing that tradition on to my son, Sam.
He's my woodworking buddy and is always welcome in my workshop. Yes, safety is always of the utmost concern when he's present. Although I never do power tool operations when he's near, he has his own safety glasses and hearing protection, and is ever reminding me to wear mine. His biggest thrill is to turn on the dust collector with the remote. I've even started his own hand tool collection from a few old hand tools I've retired. You should see how well this little guy can already use a small gents saw I gave him.
The last couple of years I've been busy building our "dream" home. I found a contractor that agreed to complete the house exterior and interior up to the drywall stage and let me take it from there. Man, was that a huge undertaking. It took me more than a year to complete all the trim work, hardwood flooring, building all the cabinetry and interior painting. Although I still have a few things incomplete such as the crown on the upper kitchen cabinets and grouting the backsplashes, we where able to move in last May. The trade-off I got for building a new house was I got to build my dream workshop. In the woods behind the house I built a 1000 sq.ft. workshop with a storage loft, small office area, sound proof closet for the dust collector and air compressor, and yes, even a restroom. Although just like the house a few things are unfinished, I've been able to squeeze out a few other woodworking projects such as end tables, a blanket chest and a few other things. I've even started taking on a few commissions in my "spare" time. I look forward to being a part of the Lumberjocks community! Thanks.

Thanks to all who welcomed me so warmly into the Lumberjocks community! I’ve recieved so may positive comments and emails. One thing I noticed, while Lumberjocks is a community about woodworking, it’s also about lifting others up. The request for quick prayer for a member who was having a bad day the other night was really cool! Thanks!
