Location: Schertz, Texas USA

I began working with wood as a child while watching my father create many projects. It always amazed me how he took a piece of wood and turn it into a masterpiece. Throughout my life/travels, I always stopped to look at the details in the construction of different pieces as my father did. Whether it is architectural/furniture design and/or joinery in Asia to everyday items like bowls, boxes and tools created in early America. I always wondered how the creators of these pieces crafted them with only hand tools common to that era. We have electricity and power tools. Since retiring from the Air Force and settled into one place, I now have my own workshop. Okay, it’s the garage but its mine. I can now spend the time to figure out how the Craftsman of past created their magnum opus and pay homage to my father. Carpe diem!

I find LJ to be helpful and informative; a great place to become a better wood worker.
