East Texas Wood Butcher

Hi All!

I'm from a small town in east Texas. I've been enjoying woodworking since high school with a break for Uncle Sam thrown in. I'll be retiring in a little over a year and enjoying the craft a lot more. I make furniture for myself and friends and sell the occasional piece.
