My passion for woodworking was originally inspired back in grade school as a result of a combination of Boy Scouts and middle school shop class. Those years were plagues with inadequate tools and a lack of the instant source of information we call the internet, but I always knew I wanted to get serious. Then in 2011, I had the space and money to start building my shop. From there…I guess “the rest is history.”
I have to give a special shout-out to my Norfolk friends who were my first customers and encouraged me to take on for-profit work.
My Current Shop
Currently, I work out of a 600 sq-ft shop in the basement of our home. The shop is set up for an optimal workflow and is a huge improvement over my previous shops. I have everything I need to accomplish most projects, but of course, there is always room for more toys. I recently upgraded my 13” Ryobi planer (original 2011 shop) to an 18” Woodmaster combination machine. I’m also in the process of building a real workbench top to compliment my Adjust-a-Bench.
