I'm just a good ol' fashioned, down to earth country boy that has a passion for hand woodworking. I remember growing up and helping my dad in his wood shop, and watching him cut hand dovetails and such. I was truly bit by the bug. I've been in and out of the hobby throughout my life, but it always seems to come back to me, as a feeling of comfort. I feel a connection with my tools, as crazy as that may sound. There is just something about picking out an old plane that's been left out to weather...it might have been a craftsman's pride and joy 60 years ago. I always have something to say, but it's not always what people want to hear...pretty much a straight shooter. Lol. I have more desire for old tools than I do money to acquire them, so I'm well read on their history. I have a complete and functioning shop, full of practical tools. There are lots of glitzy and gorgeous tools I'd like to have, but none of them are essential to woodworking...I'm a purist of sorts, in that way. My shop is in the basement of my house, and I would end up single if I spent all the time I wanted to in it. * Behind every Lumberjock is his cheerleader...even if it's just his loyal hound *
