At age 38 I bought my first house and with zero experience began an 8 year stretch of DIY projects. There is very little I won't try to do myself, and countless failures have produced a pretty strong skill set. I have relied heavily on forums like this and gotten a lot of really good advice along the way. Oh, and tools...collecting the right tools for the job has made a big difference.

I have several woodworking projects that the wife blessed as worthy of being in the house. This includes a desk, butcher block kitchen island, repurposed cabinets and a floating mantle. My projects tend to be simple and strong (not a lot of woodworking detail) and that goes along well our simple decorating tastes.

When I told the wife I wanted to build the vanity for our master bath renovation she said "no way". After some sticker shock in buying an 84" oak vanity, she said "alright...give it a shot". Currently the frame is in and topped with some beautiful granite. I still need to build drawers, doors, and a center cabinet...but it looks like I might pull this thing off.

I'll try to get some pics up soon. Looking forward to chatting with you all.
