Woodworking

I’ve been doing recreational woodworking almost my entire life. I did not have any formal training until 1992 when I was a junior in high school. This is where I took a two year vocational training course were we built 2 houses and did pretty much everything involved with them from laying out the dig site to finish carpentry.

During that time I worked in the instructor’s cabinet shop for two years plus some summers while I was away at college.

After this I took up small projects – mostly fixing or creating one time items to fill a need such as kitchen cabinet, kitchen cabinet doors, resizing various items, etc.

Within the past 3 to 4 years I have gotten more serious about my woodworking skills purchasing additional equipment for my shop and learning newer skills and techniques.

I will post some pictures when I have some additional time but these are a few of my current and past projects that I am doing or have worked on.
