New to the group...

Hello all my name is Chris and I live in northern Virginia currently. I have recently gotten back into wood working after a long break due to not having available equipment and being in the military. I recently retired and built my own shop in my basement. I work full time and work in my shop every other available moment. I would say my specialty is box making and I prefer to make humidors. I use a lot of Koa in my designs from spending many years stationed in Hawaii. Look forward to sharing and learning as much as I can. I just posted some pics of one of my first humidors in the project showcase.

Chris

Welcome Chris, you sure did pick a great state to live in! I grew up in Fairfax many years ago.
I'll have to go check out your humidor

Welcome Chris, from another woodworker from the great state of NoVa. (Oakton)

Looking forward to seeing some pictures of your work.

Are you looking to market your wares?

Thanks!
I posted pictures of one of my humidors in the project show case and will get some more up soon. I would eventually like to sell some of my things, right now I have more orders than I can fill (not a bad thing) but I can't seem to catch up. I will post some pictures today of my new shop as well.
