A little info about me...

I am 27 yrs old. I have been married for about 1 1/2 yrs and my wife and I don't have kids yet. She works full time as an RN at a hospital here in Phoenix while I am in school. I am majoring in business. I have a background in sales. I have pretty good people skills and enjoy the interactions that I have had through my sales jobs. I have always been somewhat of an entrepreneur and I don't ever think that I will ever only have one source of income. Luckily my wife has a good job that we can rely on from time to time.

I grew up with parents that seemed to constantly be remodeling their houses. I have always been around power tools and I feel that I have a natural ability to use them. I have built several small projects (you can see some of them in my projects section). Over the last year and a half I have become fascinated with furniture building. I am currently taking a woodworking class at a local community college but the program here is very limited. I am trying to decide if it would be worth it to go to a school that specializes in furniture design and craftsmanship. I feel that I have a good eye for detail and I am able to learn things very quickly. My tentative plan is to get my business education, go to furniture school to really hone my skills and develop a good portfolio, and then possibly apprentice with a successful furniture builder until I can do it on my own.

That kind of sums up my current situation.

Welcome to Lumberjocks. The projects are an inspiration, the information is priceless and the people are supportive. The only problem is, the site can get addictive.
