Woodworking and Woodturning have been a passion of mine for a number of years.

I certainly don't profess to be the greatest at woodworking, but I have built a few items that I'm proud of. For now, I'm utilizing a table saw, miter saw, scroll saw, drill press and other equipment on one side of my garage. I hope by the time I retire to have a fully functional wood shop as well as wood turning equipment.

Below are some links to some good workworking and woodturning sites as well as some pictures of projects I've done over the years.
