Life on the frozen tundra of South Dakota Life on the frozen tundra of South Dakota

To some extent, I have had an interest in woodworking my entire life. I remember getting excited in kindergarten when it was my turn to do the wood craft and I nailed a few strips of wood together to make an "airplane". Around the same time, one Christmas morning I unwrapped a small tool set that came with some wood strips and a few simple plans.

My father never considered himself to be a woodworker, but he was handy enough to show me things over the years that helped me grow my own skills.

As I grew older, my projects grew in complexity. I remember making rudimentary shelves, a go-kart, and some wooden guitar props (for my air guitar performances on the basement hide-a-bed stage.) After I was old enough to purchase cars, I made numerous speaker boxes. After I graduated from college, I decided to become a bit more serious about this hobby and started purchasing the necessary tools and honing my skills.

While I make no claim to be Norm Abram, I feel my skills have gotten better over the years. Hopefully you'll notice a difference in my craftsmanship when comparing older projects on this site with more recent ones.

I tell people that, "I never stop making mistakes. I just get better and better at hiding them."

Where the bad projects end up.
