Greetings from Kansas
I've been lurking here for some time digesting the information and hopefully making my future projects look much nicer. I got into wood working about 8 years ago when I built a cedar chest for my wife as a wedding gift. Since then I've slowly added to my tools and have built some fairly simple pieces such as desks, simple cabinets, entertainment center, and my current project a pair of night stands.
I work and live in Topeka, Kansas and am always looking to expand my woodworking capabilities and knowledge. It would be nice to make some connections with some local woodworkers because I'm always looking to learn from a pro so that my work looks and functions better.
I want to die quietly in my sleep like my grandfather, not screaming in terror like the passengers of his car.
