I am never sure how to title myself, I like to work with wood. Mostly as a hobby, but I have worked in cabinetry and as a framer before. I like to be able to make things for our home the best though. Hobby woodworking enthusiest? I don't know, but I truly love wood working. I was bitten by the bug in ECS (kindergarten) when I saw a classmate make a bow and arrow so I tried to as well (and failed miserably) I have been around it as much as I can be ever since.

I live in a small village in Alberta, Canada. The population is 314. My wife and I call a 1930 house our home, with our 2 year old son, and 4 year old chocolate lab. We recently bought this fixer upper because my wife and I have always wanted a place that was a blank slate, to put our own stamp on it and not live in someone elses dream house.
By day I work at a grain elevator, and in my spare time I can usually be found in the garden or in the woodshop. I have started using more and more handtools since my son was born. The importance of handtools was instilled in me early by my father, then again in High School by my Cabinetry/Construction teacher.

I don't have any specialties but I seem to be often found hand cutting parquetry losenges with the miter saw, or whittling beside the wood stove.
I would like to eventually buy some land and set up a small scale sawmill operation, mostly to mill lumber for myself and friends.

Now to get some projects posted!!
