Hi from Northern Illinois

Greetings from a broken down war horse who is hoping to rekindle his love of working wood. After recovering from multiple surgeries and remodeling the house in-between hospital stays it is my hope to work wood for myself. Many years ago I made a chest, mirror and side table with hand tools alone. After completing the house the tools have grown along with my desire to take on more complicated projects. I have also taken up turning and found it to be a narcotic. It's easy to spend hours just making ribbons.

If you folks know of anyone in the Northern Illinois area (Lindenhurst, Lake Villa, Fox Lake) that has work space available I have an entire workshop looking for a home and would love to be able to share these tools with a fellow woodworker.

Thanks and see you around - Paul
