hi my name is Mike and im just starting out with this great hobby of woodworking. trying to learn as i go and things are going slowly! im learning something new everytime i go out to the shop though so thats a good thing. been gathering tools and doing a lot of reading
my shop is 1/2 of my 24x28 2 car garage. i back the truck out while i work so i can use the other half then clean it up and park it there at night. its uninsulated and it gets pretty cold here so most times it about 30-35 degrees out there when im working but i carry on!
so far ive built a few things some arent all the way done though. such things include cabinets for the shop, almost finished an outside version of a morris chair, almost finished some more cabinets for our hallway and i made my mother in law a charger valet to give her husband. that was a surprise gift that came out pretty good. was my first attempt at staining and finishing as well! she was thrilled and so was he though so worked out great. unfortunetly i didnt think to get pics of it
next on the list is a mission style end table of my own design and im going to make my wife a keepsake box for her birthday
anyways this site seems pretty cool so i figured id join and say hello
