Location: elkhart indiana

My name is Tom I am from northern Indiana. I have had a long time passion for woodworking and am currently pursuing my dream of being a great woodworker. In 2011 I lost my closest cousin due to suicide and never knew his wonderful hidden talent of woodworking until his leaving us. My aunt said I could have learned a'lot from him but neither of us really knew of each others interest. Sometimes life gets too hectic being the father of 5 children and money can be tight most times but my dreams are pretty simple. I have a small 2 stall garage to hopefully finish converting to a workshop and have a few nice machines to help me carry out my dreams but of course the rest is up to me.

thank you all I am finishing up a aquarium stand for my new 125 gallon salt water tank pretty simple with a pro and con. The pro being it looks good lol but also I wanted to compliment the ocean in a way being a saltwater tank so I …......okay I ruined the beauty of the wood even tho it was merely red oak I stained it and Im so ashamed ha ha no I used a ocean blue with the grain of the wood coming thru as a carmel kinda signifying the ocean/beach perception with the added effect I rubbed it out dry in random places to also give it the washed up on shore look kinda like antiquing but I am learning quickly to let the beauty of the wood come out so that is my first and only woodworking sin. I will post some pics soon but this is my first true project that i took my time on using the router and kreg jig and so forth. I am happy to be able to share my ideas and learn from pro’s like you guys in fact I like this better than facebook. I look forward to becoming aquiainted with some of you. Merry Christmas to all
