Computer Jockey by day... wannabe woodworker by night...our hero fights a never-ending battle for truth, justice, and the American Way!

Well... maybe that's overstating things.

If not yet a full-fledged LumberJock, I'm at least the LumberEquipmentManager ;)..but with everyone's excellent advice I'll get there.

My current woodworking interests revolve mostly around woodturning projects and some simple furniture making. But what I really want do do is learn to be a Luthier--which I know is no small undertaking. That will take a long time to do well.

But I'll keep everyone here apprised of my progress as it happens. Since the homestead includes not only SWMBO & four young'ns and a half-dozen pets. My woodworking schedule is variable at best.
