Home Bluebirds/Birds Pets/Animals Hobbies Favorites Other Stuff 



I have been a woodworker since a very early age.  I was in my teens when I produced my first piece of furniture, using only hand tools.  As I grew older, I collected many tools making my woodshop one of my favorite places, especially on cold winter days when the sun sets down early, and I can spend a lot of time in my shop.  At such times it is dark early, and too cold to stay outside.
