At heart I am a tinkerer. I have always loved taking things apart and seeing what made them tick. Sometimes I even got them to go back together! I also like making things. It doesn't seem to matter what. I just like to create. I am not an artist by any means. My designer hat doesn't really fit. But I have fun at it regardless.
This love, passion, drive, whatever you'd like to call it has lead to two major interests. Software development and woodworking. This is where I showcase both of these things.
On the software side, I "grew up" on C/C++. In recent years, I have focused on the .Net Framework. C# is my flavor of choice. I have done mostly services and WinForms apps. But recently I have been moving towards web development using MVC and WebAPI. I diggin' it.
In the woodworking arena, I really like Craftsman/Mission style furnature. To me, it's very clean. Shaker falls into that category to me as well. But my love of quarter sawn oak keeps me looking at Craftsman/Mission projects.
How do I stand on handtools vs powertools? Whatever gets the job done. Do I always use the table saw or band saw to rip? No. Do I always use the handplane to finish a surface? No. Sometimes I want to work quietly in the basement, sometimes I want to burn some serious electrons in the garage.
Right now, the site is pretty sparse and it's rough around the edges. I intend to continously improve it, so check back often.
Thanks for stopping by!
