Hello All!

I was told (ordered) to join this forum by Mr. Rob from Tule Peak Timber.

My experience in woodworking is only a few years.  I took the orientation course with The Hand Tool School.  My path has been toward the "unplugged" style.  I like this for the craftmanship and it really allows my kids to hang out with me when I am creating.  Plus my workshop is pretty small.  

The intent I have for joining this forum is to grow my knowledge within this craft.  Then I can apply the lessons learned here to practical work and grow my experience.  There really isn't a drive to create a business since I work full time.  But I do tend to take commissions when I need to buy new tools or supplies.  

This is my little shop, still working everything out since I just moved here and haven't been able to really focus on organizing.  

~Chris~

Youll have fun here and increase knowledge as well. Remember, dont be afraid to comment or ask questions about ALMOST anything.

Heck, you can even start new threads about stuff thats interesting to you, or just stuff in general! :P
Trying harder everyday.

I added a bunch to my site that I tried making one time.  I made it really just from playing around and had no intention of growing a business.
