Location: Fort Worth, Tx.

I started doing wood working because a friend told me that I could never build something as good as a master craftsman friend of ours. That was about 7 years ago and I was sucked in by the creative outlet.Most projects I create usually come from a cross between a necessity and Adam Wells (my neighbor) and my self drinking in the shop late at night and saying "You know what would be cool?". (Which is the wood workers equivalent of a redneck saying Hey guys watch this!)

Disclaimer: We are professional highly trained drinkers and recomend that you never try this in your shop.

Almost 6 years ago I purchased a Jet Midi lathe with a little apprehention and have since become adddicted to it like a crack addict. Lol So most of my projects these days are turned on my lathe, however i still occasionaly build flat projects.

I am constantly trying to push my abilities by creating things that I have not seen and trying techniques that I have never tried.

Hope everyone is well dduring this holiday season.

Sorry i have not posted anything in awhile but life got really tough for a couple years.

I went througn a divorce and completely lost any ambition to worknin my shop, matter of fact I didnt build anything for over a year.

The good news is that i did get primary custody of my daughter and we are doing great.

i have recently started working in the shop and Turning once again, so expect to see some postings in the near future.

They may or may not be on par to what I was building before, this is due to the skills being a bit rusty from lack of use, but i will post it anyway. :-)
