My primary hobby is woodworking and I really enjoy it. I love doing projects around my house and leaning new skills. I'm fascinated by timber framing and hand cut joinery. I like to sharpen my own chisels and hand plane blades to a mirror, razor edge and I love the sense of accomplishment when I build something nice for the house that my family can enjoy. And knowing my tolerances are tighter and it cost a fraction of what it would have been had I hired it out.

My future plans, as time between work and family permit (with some fishing in there):

timber frame knee braces for under the eaves of my roof
timber frame pergola swing beefy enough to hold a cast iron park bench I'm redoing with Ipe
timber frame pergola/pole building/parking structure on the side of my house
covered deck with the cover tied into the top of my roofline due to low eaves
half-moon, arched arbor gate into the back yard
enclosed garden (hardware cloth over 4x4 frame) with raised planter beds for my wife
built-in cabinets and coat rack in existing entryway close space in my house
kitchen nook bench seat with storage

and for fun when I'm on the couch at night I'd love to start making Kumiko pieces with some jigs I made and a low angle block plane. I am fascinated by the Kumiko designs and I'd love to make some incorporated into projects.
