Part 1: A new wife, a new life, and the pride a family has for its members...

This is an interesting time in my life, for sure. A month ago today I got married, and now, the day we will be celebrating that tiniest of milestones, I have let the motivation of my new wife and her family guide me into sharing my passion for woodworking with the rest of the online community. I suppose it was only a matter of time, really. I’ve been expanding into the digital mainstream of woodworking more and more. I’ve become a member of the woodwhisperer guild and, hopef...

Well, I realize it’s been quite some time since the last post, and there’s a good reason. My wife and I moved out of the condo we were renting and into our very first house. We’re crazy excited to be home owners, but there have been quite a few challenges. We got a good price in a nice area of a decent part of the country, but our new home needs work.
