My name is Jon and I live near the small town of Worthington, IN. My interest in woodworking goes as far as I can remember. My grandfather had a woodshop in his garage and as a small boy I would accompany him as he built my grandmother "knickknacks". I would sit by the woodstove and drill holes in a board or use his scroll saw. As I grew up I moved on to other hobbies and nearly forgot all that I had learned.
A year ago that great man passed away and I inherited some of his tools as well as buying his homestead. I have been fortunate to have all of these resources and it just felt right to follow in his footsteps. So I've started building again and found that I have a passion for it. I work primarily with wood I have harvested off of the homestead and enjoy the challenges of building something new. Of course it doesn't hurt to have a wife who appreciates fine work and always encourages me to push my abilities. I tell her she suffers from "duplicates syndrome". Whatever i make for someone else she needs a duplicate of it.
