Hello from NE Illinois

Although I joined this site as a member a couple of years ago, I am new to the forums, but not to woodworking

I have been in business as a custom woodworker around 6 years, and have worked for other cabinet makers and guitar makers for 35 years before that. So I have a bit of experience. Based out of Island Lake IL, which is about 40 miles NW of the Chicago downtown area.

I generally don't spend a lot of time on the computer, but a site like this can offer a lot of experience to those who are new to woodworking, as well as those of us who are still learning after many years of experience, so I'll be checking in every so often to put in my 2 cents.


Experience is something you don't get until just after you need it.

Welcome from Canada. Looking forward to hearing some of your input and hopefully seeing some of your work.

There is a very fine line between a "hobby" and a "mental illness"
