I love woodworking. It is very satisfying to visualize a piece, take an ordinary stack of boards and make those boards come to life.

I enjoy stepping out to my shop in the evening to make a little sawdust. It seems to clear my head better than any other hobby.

In my mind, there is little that gets me more excited than applying the first coat of finish on a 3-month project.

I'm a third generation woodworker and the father of 2 wonderful boys. (Future woodworkers I hope!)
