Hello (and a little background)!
This blog will be an experiment for me….I’m going to try and use it to help me absorb the lessons that I learn in the woodshop. I’m teaching myself, with occasional help from professionals, to work wood. I’m learning to be a cabinetmaker (see cherry bed above), and have recently become hooked on the lathe.
Until recently, I’ve been taking turning lessons from an excellent local turner named Edric Florence. I’m taking a break from the lessons for a few months to give me some time to practice what I’ve learned so far.
I manage a technology consulting group during the day, and am a father and repressed woodworker by night. I finally have equipped my workshop to the point where I can no longer use it as an excuse, so here I go!
