As Marc DeCou would say, I currently work for the man.

I have a shop in the back yard I like to play in. I do not build anything professionally. My shop is more of a retreat, no phone. I have always had an interest in woodworking, making few projects over the years. Most for Christmas and birthday presents. My start was on an old Sears radial arm saw, my father had purchased in the early 60's. I would get pallets and scrap lumber form the local lumberyard where my father worked for a while. Pallets are not the best material to use for a youngster. (Very difficult to tear apart)

Over the years I have accumulated more tools and have found that my interest for woodworking has deepened also. My first real piece of furniture hangs in my folk's house. It was a Scandinavian corner cabinet published in a Woodsmith issue. I have built two other ones since.

I hope to learn more over time from your projects and the comments made on them or any projects I may post on this website. I have enjoyed viewing many of the projects posted and reading the comments. Hope to post a project soon
