Location: Chicago

I've always enjoyed woodworking. I learned everything I know about the craft from my Dad and some of my earliest memories take place in his workshop. As I've found myself all of a sudden in full-blown adulthood with a wife, daughter, house... and the infamous honey-do list, I've realized how long its been and how far I've strayed from one of my favorite hobbies (woodworking). Actually I recently realized it didn't happen all of a sudden and how much time has actually elapsed.
Most of my free time has been spent remodeling our 114 year old house. Granted, there's a lot of carpentry involved and I've enjoyed every minute of it, but it's not what any of us would consider woodworking. Now that the house remodel is under control, I hope to focus a bit more on woodworking.
I'm certainly still a novice, but hope that over time I'll be able to feel confident in updating that skill level.
I'm currently living in São Paulo Brazil for work reasons, but have a scheduled return date in a few months and am counting down the days to when I'll be home in Chicago setting up my shop.
I've already learned a lot from the LJ community and look forward to putting some of that new found knowledge to use.
Thanks for having me!

Welcome. You have found the right place for woodworking. A great group of people willing to help. Looking forward to see your projects and comments. Work safe in the shop and don’t forget to use pushsticks.
