    Older newbie from Michigan

    Looking forward to getting back in the shop in the coming weeks.
    I had taken a leave of woodworking for a couple years, and feel like this winter will be the time to make sawdust again.
    I am 62, retired and enjoy being active but staying out of the cold outdoors (in Michigan that means NOV-APR).
    Furniture is what I enjoy making, for our home, and family.Click image for larger version.

    Welcome the the family!
    Anybody can become a woodworker, but only a Craftsmen can hide his mistakes!

    The Bible tells us to love our neighbors, and also to love our enemies; probably because they are generally the same people.

    Before you criticize someone, you should walk a mile in their shoes. That way, when you criticize them, you're a mile away and you have their shoes.
