It’s been over a year since I have posted anything.  Life kind of gets in the way; work, family and projects keep most of my time occupied.  I have decided to take things more seriously with my blog / webpage.  Since my last post I have built several projects, taken several business trips and mowed the lawn more times than I care to.  I have also aged another year.  I love working with my hands building things and solving problems.  I want to share my experience in the shop and handyman type of work.  I want to showcase my mistakes and triumphs so others may learn from them.

There are hundreds if not thousands of YouTube channels dedicated to the fine art of woodworking and DIY.  I am going to throw myself into this.  These are not just channels but a community of like minded people, many of which collaborate and fellowship.  Some have huge subscription bases and make a living from their channels, patrons, web storefronts and commissions.  I appreciate the woodworking videographer, vloggers and webmasters out there because they all provide knowledge and experiences that have assisted me in my growth as a woodworker and a DIYer.  I have also been inspired and motivated to move forward in my venture of sharing.

Over the next 3 to 5 years I hope to have a shop built separate from my house; learn some new skills such as welding, electrician, plumbing and automotive mechanics.  Retire a second time and work for myself.  This plan sounds ambitious and it is, but I may only have 20 to 30 more years, maybe more, in this body and I want to have more time for my wife, children and myself.  I won’t work full-time but pick up jobs and commissions that I am interested in and to do enough business to pay for and enjoy travel and adventure with my family.

I hope to post 2 to 3 times a week on this page.  I have some builds coming up and shop updates.  Until then thanks.
