I started woodworking in 2000. I have been a hack for the last 15+ years. In late 2014 I decided to build an acoustic guitar, but first needed to stop being a hack. So I sold most of my power tools and replaced them with hand tools in the interest of learning more about wood and how it "works".

Since this transition I have learned a thousand times more about wood and working wood than I ever did in my power tool days. Though my last few projects with power tools turned out well, they were still sloppy by most people's standards.

I'm slowly becoming less of a hack and started a uke build (blog about that here on LJs) in 2016. I started work on my first guitar in 2017 with hopes of completing it in time for a friend's birthday in December, 2017.
