    Been a hobbyist woodworker for 20 plus years. Self taught which means more bad habits than good ones. I call Working "sawdust therapy". I have a 12x20 shop. I work and have a family so shop time is precious. I'm hoping to this forum will help me become a better woodworker, and maybe make a friend or two along the way. Projects. Five piece bedroom set, two cherry dressers, aquarium cabinet, toys, pens, window seat, lots of scroll saw stuff, humidor from walnut burl, sandbox, outdoor blackboard, indoor chalkboards, wall cabinet, salt and pepper shakers, lazy susans and other turnings.
