Food and cooking are my true passions. I can't wait to try a new recipe and cook for my friends and family. At one point I went to culinary school to further pursue this passion. Sadly my food journey ended when I got sick. A birth defect in my internal organs caused my body to shut down about 6 years ago. As a result I can only have one full meal a day so i make that meal count.

I have always had an interest in creating something from wood and decided a new passion was in order. Like my one meal a day, when I create something from wood I make it count. I love the challenge and the problem solving. Most of all I can make something beautiful from what others might say is an ugly piece of wood.

I source most of my wood from my job in a warehouse. Old pallets, shipping crates and random bit's that show up. The rest I find on Craigslist free section or purchase when I need something other than soft woods. Being on a tight budget you get resourceful.

I've only been wood working for 2 years now and started with a drill, hammer, and circular saw. I've since added an old table saw, router, miter saw, and band saw. I'm getting into hand planes now which is a hell of a work out if you have no idea what you're doing. Wing it? Naw, not over here.....well not much anyway. Thanks to many blogs and youtube tutorials I'm getting the hang of it.

You had better watch out; woodworking is extremely addicting. I’m sure you already know this by now. Welcome!
