A Little About Me
I guess that I should tell you a little about me. First and foremost, I am an avid woodworker. Like I mentioned in my first post, I have been working with wood for more than 25 years (and I’m only forty!). I started back in high school with a scrollsaw, in Dad’s shop, during the heyday of country décor, cutting goose shapes from pine for my Mom’s craft business. It paid quite well, and, as it was paid per piece, I became quite fast. I fell in love with wood, and soon, I was watching Norm and Roy on PBS. Two of my earliest solo projects were a pine bookcase (made with power tools and mortise and tenon joints ala Norm Abrams) and a rustic hickory log headboard (made completely with hand tools ala Roy Underhill).
