I waited until I was 54 years old to try this hobby and what a mistake that was. Please feel free to criticize any and all goof-ups you see. I hope to learn from many of the fine craftsmen that are members here.

Never to late to start!
Looks really nice to me. Usually we, ourselves are our own best critics. Make some more pieces.
God bless

And welcome to LJ’s

That looks great! We all started somewhere and I think it looks like you are off to a great start. I still improve on every project.

Great looking projects! Keep on building and keep on enjoying. I hope we see a lot more projects from you. I’m always one for telling everyone to take time to sign and date each project. In a few years you’ll look back and realize just how great that project was. I’ve always been glad I took the time to sign and date mine. (especially the projects I gave to others).
