Location: Somewhere lost in the wilds of North Carolina

After 30 plus years as a subcontract carpenter, I finally hung up the professional tool belt because my wife got tired of listening to me groan every day when getting out of bed. I have always loved wood working, and purchased a Shopsmith in the early eighties, which I set up in a 10’x12’ shed with one sorely overtaxed outlet, a small fixed pane window and one overhead 60 watt light bulb to work by. At the time I was building bunk beds for This End Up “furniture,” getting up at 3:30 am for the early shift... and then making a bee line for my shed as soon as I got home. I had, and still have the woodworking bug bad.

15 years ago I built my own small shop, made some money with it...and now have the fortune of time to play and create projects for myself and family. It’s like a magnet...even if I don’t have something going I love being there amongst the tools and the wood. My wife is a woodworking widow, kept appeased by the occasional piece of furniture, widget or doodad that I create. She doesn’t seem to mind too much.

There are a number of true artists on this website, individuals with skill sets, knowledge and sense of design far more advanced than mine. I hope to, and will contribute, but for now, mostly I come to learn from others. Such is this wonderful, creative hobby/ profession we choose to immerse ourselves in...always some new skill, technique or fascinating self challenge around the corner.

OK....done. The shop awaits!
