I would like to introduce myself. I am Mike from Iowa. I've been a woodworker from the days growing up and tinkering in the shop on the farm. I still have some of the first tools I ever acquired ...okay, probably most all tools I have acquired, much to my wife's chagrin. I have wandered down many different aisles in the shop from wood carving, intarsia, small craft projects, furniture, construction, instrument building, toy making, to name a few. As you can tell, my interests are varied and I jump from one to the other as something grabs my attention or need. I just finished a quilt hanger and my next project will be a convertible crib for an upcoming addition to the clan. I hope to be checking out the forums and getting inspired, instructed, and impassioned about more projects.
