Just to be clear. I’m a woodworker, not a computer geek. I’m not the greatest typer, and I sometimes get stumped trying to do a simple computer task. I do, however, realize the value of sharing information with fellow woodworkers.

I’m a self-taught craftsman. I learned everything I know from reading, doing, re-doing, reading some more, and trying again. I have lots of great craftsmen to thank for passing along the craft. If I can share something that helps another craftsman, I’m happy to do it.

So, from time to time, I will publish a technique, share a story or just plain old get something off my mind.

Let me know what you think and thanks for your interest.
