Thanks guys. I've just been looking at some of the project posts on here, and I'm truly amazed. I've been a carpenter for 30 years, but never really did any woodworking. Built houses and commercial buildings, but never anyhing like I've seen here. BEAUTIFUL work!
Builder/Architect/Bldg Commish. Did a lot of residential building and residential and commercial design. At it for 29 years. I've dabbled with woodworking projects but mostly my experience has been framing lumber.
Since being in the trades puts us into the ranks of the unemployed or underemployed, and I've been self employed, I have too much time on my hands. But that's a good thing in a way. It allows the "inner chainsaw maniac" to come out, and I shape my projects out of tree cut.
