Location: Marion, Iowa

I am very much an amatuer when it comes to woodworking. My wife and I remodeled an old house for our music academy a little over 3 years ago. Its taken 2 years to complete and there is a little more to come. My shop consist of a ridgid r4511 table saw, a dewault miter saw, a router table and hand tools in the basement of my wife's aceademy. My current projects consist of building bookcases for my teachers, a new secretary's desk and a few odd and end projects. Over the last year my interest in woodworking has increased and this is more than just any simple hobby - I am hooked.
