My hobby is to have hobbies. I'm mostly into ham radio, electronics and computers -computer geek by day. But I've always enjoyed working (more like butchering) wood.
I want to get more into working with hand tools and making some crude tools. I follow Paul Sellers but I'm also a fan of Chris Schwarz and Roy Underhill, amongst others. I'll never be totally anti-power tool - table saw, jointer, drill press and one day a planer and band saw I hope. But I really want to learn how to use old tools, planes, scrapers and chisels. Kind of a simpler side to balance all the computer/electronics side.
