Location: Des Moines, IA

I am 35, married to a wonderful lady, with a little 18 month old and mini basset hound.
Most of my projects are either gifts for people, or things we need around the house. Like many here it's a compromise between having the time to do all you want, and having the money for it. I am slowly building up my tool collection. Which is frustrating and happy. getting a new tool is a great excuse to try out new techniques, but due to budgetary constraints I have also found out a lot about the limitations of cheap tools.
I am gaining my knowledge from books, youtube, but mostly trial and error so any advice from anyone is greatly appreciated!
I work in the high end AV/ low voltage control industry full time, so if you have questions about that I may be able to help. I also work part time for a winery, so I am sure many of my next projects will be wine related.
