A new hobby? Why not!

So about four years ago I purchased my first home. I was thrilled about everything that comes with home ownership, but wasn't quite prepared for the "projects" that constantly popped up! Luckily, I am not one that is afraid to try to tackle a problem with a little help from YouTube or Google. One project led to another, and I quickly realized that I enjoyed working with my hands and my somewhat stubborn, perfectionist mentality somehow often led me to that "Ah Ha!" moment when I finally figured it out and solved the problem. I think that's kinda like the one good golf shot per round that always keeps you coming back to the course, right?

A year or so after I bought my house, my great grandfather passed away. He was an incredible carpenter! I remember growing up playing with toys, swinging on swings, and sitting on benches that were crafted by him. This led me to think that it was somewhere in my blood, so I wanted to give woodworking a try! I have slowly started building my tool arsenal with hopes to one day be able to expand and have a stand alone shop. While my completed project list is pretty short at this point, LJs has given me so many ideas that I am looking forward to adding to my resume!

I look forward to joining the community and learning from the vets! For those of you who have critique, I certainly welcome all that you have to say - good or bad! Hopefully I will one day be able to add some wisdom to this site, but until then... thanks for joining me on my woodworking journey!
