About Me...

Transient

I was aware that I had a talent for working wood since the 8th grade, but never had the opportunity to cultivate those skills until 2003, when I decided to turn my two car garage into a wood shop. Ever since, it has been an obsess.... uh... passion. I like to think that I represent what is possible to any serious amateur woodworker, and that although I have accomplished a skill level of a professional, that there is still much to learn.

When I first setup shop in 2003, I though that I already knew everything there was to know about woodworking from my experience in high school shop class. (Yeah, right.) Here I am six years later, and my "things-to-learn-and-do" list has only gotten longer. Perhaps this is what keeps me interested in Woodworking. I thoroughly enjoy constantly pushing my skills to their limits. It does not always work out well and sometimes I wonder what I got myself into, but I would rather try and fail than not try at all—and I always come out wiser at the other end of the project. In the words of Michelangelo, "The greatest danger for most of us is not that our aim is too high and we miss it, but that it is too low and we reach it."
