Born in 1960, I've been woodworking since 2001. My shop is a tad less than half of a two car garage, and is shared by too much other stuff. It's un-insulated and difficult to work in during winter and the hottest part of summer, so I tend to do mostly "cyber woodworking" during those months, which doesn't leave a lot of time during the year!

Most of my projects are furniture for around the house, along with occasional items for friends and family. I gravitate toward the Mission/Arts & Crafts style but tend to go my own way just using elements of the styles that I like. Much of my wood is salvaged or given to me. I've been fortunate to have purchased surprisingly little wood over the years. A deviation from furniture was an electric guitar in 2007. Since I don't play, it was the most challenging thing I've tackled to date, but was also the most rewarding. I followed it up with a tube amp to go with it, then a 2nd guitar, followed by a toilet-seat guitar, followed by a Banjolele, so that everyone who wanted something with strings got something.

Audio was my first serious hobby, and is what ultimately led me to woodworking. The current covid situation provided a good opportunity to reconnect with my audio roots.
