Well if you are reading this I would suspect you are somewhat interested or have some time on your hands.

I set out a few years ago to work on being more patience and detail oriented, to take more time and put more thought in what I do in the shop and in life in general. I've always been blessed with the ability to envision something and create it with little to no planning and limited resources. But I would always be in such a hurry to finish as fast as I could, to get the end of the project to get my little micro jolt of satisfaction. I've come to realize there was much more I was missing out on. That old saying resonates as I write..."It's not the destination that is important, it's the journey".

I wanted to take on learning some new skills and using primarily hand tools. Being fairly cheap but having an appreciation for quality I chose to hunt down used vintage tools and restore them to useable condition. And now with my tool list all checked off.....I'm ready to work.
I've read and viewed photos from this site for countless hours and wanted to thank you all for your contributions. I've learned a lot and now with a couple projects under my belt I feel inspired to join in.
