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.

You can find some pictures of my current and past projects that I am doing or have worked on in the SBW Articles in the menu.
