I have been dabbling with woodworking for 30+ years but I really decided to concentrate on woodworking as a serious hobby about 7 years ago. About two years ago I started to learning about hand tools. The local junior college has several courses that teach the use power tools and basic cabinetry. I have taken classes on sharpening and hand cutting dovetail joints. I am assembling a nice set of power and hand tools. When I get it cleaned up I’ll put a slide show together.
I am working on several projects for my shop but mostly I work on projects for the house, my kids and grandkids and my wife’s scrapbooking studio.
I am a member of the local woodworking club, Sacramento Area Woodworkers, SAW (http://www.sacramentoareawoodworkers.com/). They have lots of skill building classes, good short meetings and make toys (almost 2000 toys a year) for the Salvation Army. This year, I am helping a little, next year I am looking for a niche that I can fill in the toy making. It is a really great bunch of guys and a few very special ladies.
