I'm a very new woodworker and despite having two professional carpenters amongst my in-laws who think I'm nuts, I am steadfastly approaching wood with hand tools only. There's something about the quiet methodical artisanry required to mold the wood that really speaks to me. (Plus it's great to be able to sing to my favorite tunes instead of being suffocated by a dust mask!)

I currently work out of a two-car garage that I've 100% claimed from both the cars and my better half, but the wood shares the garage with my other two passions: gardening and bicycling. Winter is my workshop time since I tend to be in the garden March through October.

I have a list of projects a mile long but most of my upcoming projects are garden-oriented and shop organization projects, which is perfect, since both types are pretty forgiving of my woodworking "skills." I'm looking forward to learning from all the talented folks here.
