Location: Petaluma California

I am an accountant by day and a novice woodworker by night and weekend. I have made a few things, some I am proud of, some not. I am always aspiring to challenge myself. I am a new grandmother to the best grandsons in the entire universe. Oh, I also have a couple of daughters that are pretty nice...Everything I know about woodworking came from books. I took a couple of day classes, just to learn how to use tools, but I have always loved making things and I love the smell of wood and the feeling of accomplishment when I am proud of myself. So, this being the first time I have ever joined anything...except girl scouts when I was a kid...I'm open to whatever may come of it.

2018 returning...update. I have been off of here for a very long time but just retired and am ready to start playing again!

Welcome, I did exactly what you are wanting to do except that I am lucky enough to be within driving distance, 150 miles, of my granddaughter. I gave her the horse for her fist birthday and she is going on two now.

Hi Robbi, I felt alot like you did. But I have to tell you it has been nothing but fun. It is addicting like they said. I love looking at everyone else’s stuff. I just mess around with wood. Never had lessons or read books. Just learned what I know on my own. Not that I know much. Don’t feel like I really belong here. Would love to learn more if I had the time. Just never enough of that. My daugher got married last year and she’s trying to get pregnat so I’ll probalby be a grandma too soon. Lookiing at your profile, you’ve been here a long time. Now I feel stupid. Ha, ha. Love your work.
