Welcome to my blog!
You’ve stumbled upon the ramblings of a rank beginner that has long dreamed of one day possessing the skills of a master craftsman that can turn a block of mahogany into a work of art. While those aspirations will probably remain dreams for a while, I am taking my first steps at becoming a skilled woodworker.
After debating on whether to equip a small shop and start a process of experimentation or take a class and narrow the learning curve, I’ve decided to forgo a few thousand board feet of disasters and take a class. Luckily there is a well respected woodworking program at a nearby community college (Palomar College, San Marcos, CA) that offers just what I’m looking for. Hopefully the class will limit my mistakes and get me on the right path from the start. Tomorrow is my first day of class, so I’m very excited about beginning the journey.
If nothing else, this blog will give me a chance to look back several months from now and see just what kind of progress I’ve made. Hopefully a few of you will follow along and share your thoughts on my journey. If you do, I look forward to meeting you, if not, thanks for stopping by.
