I thought I’d take a few minutes and give a bit of background on myself and start to tell why I’ve started down this path of woodworking. To set the picture of my youth I am from a small farming community in central Ohio. The town I grew up in just peaked 1000 people in the 2010 census. One stop light. One gas station/convenient store.

Now that Christmas is over and I’m back to work, I’ve had some time to think about the blessings I got this season. My wife got me the Ryobi 18v One+ Drill/Impact Driver kit from Home Depot this year. I have yet to use the drill, but I’ve already put the impact driver to much use.
