I am a life long woodworker. If feasible I would collect wood like a hoarder.

Every house I have ever purchased has been a fixer upper. So much of my work has been of necessity.
And a great outlet for the creative process. Mostly I am forever doing something I haver never done before. It is a continual learning process with unique challenges to solve. How folks make a living doing this is beyond me. Never mind having someone to satisfy besides yourself. I think I would fire my customers.

I have lots of children, so I also make pieces that they can keep. I am currently building a reproduction crib for my first grandchild. I am hoping that this website will be a resource for me and others. It may take some time for me to find my way around the site.

My shop is a lifetime of collecting hand tools and machines. The building I have my shop may be a future retirement home. Right now it is another fixer upper.

I am also a sporting clays enthusiast. I have taken almost a year off from this sport but hope to be seeing flying clays again soon.

That's all for now, DVail12
