Location: Howard County, Maryland

I am a 33 year old Construction Project Manager for a small GC in the Baltimore area. I went to the University of MD and graduated with a BS in Civil Engineering, and directly after graduating, worked for one of the top 5 GC's in the nation for almost 10 years. During those 10 years I was out of town for 4 1/2 years. This cut into my family / home time, and this is why I moved onto the company I am with right now. With that move I have been able to start to get caught up on house work and begin my wood working hobby (mostly out of necessity right now).

Of my first 3 projects there is only one that I would consider "for me"...You will see a pic of my table top cigar humidifier soon (nothing special, but it holds 70% humidity, and that is what it is supposed to do!)

I’m a newbie to this site, but a long time surfer of it. I enjoy looking at everyone’s work. It helps me to come up with some of my own ideas.

I started off building speaker boxes for my car about 16 years ago, and now I’m starting to make furniture…Never thought I’d be doing that, but there is a satisfaction to making something yourself.

I don’t have anything posted yet, but will take some pictures and post them over the next couple of weeks.

Thanks for all of the welcomes!!

Just so everyone knows, I already do love this site, and waste a good bit of time here looking at other peoples projects. It’s amazing how someone elses project can spark that creative thing in your own head. (i.e. I was going to buy a table top cigar humidor, but looked around on here and did a little homework on how humidors work, and then I decided to make one!)

I’m just finally saying thanks for all of the great ideas…Who knows, maybe my work will do the same.
