This is my very first blog and I am very excited. This blog's intention is to provide a baseline for me, and hopefully for others, on my progress with using traditional woodworking techniques to build furniture, small cabinets, picture frames, and joinery boxes. I am relatively new to using hand tools, instead of power tools, seeing as I am home re-modeler, and house builder. ( two ICF houses under my belt.) My next blog posting will be my current tool list, as well as much needed additions. Stay tuned, more to come!!!!!
