Murillo, ON, CA
An Engineer by training, I have enjoyed woodworking since my father first "let me cut my first board" in his basement shop when I was only 7 years old. After gaining some confidence and basic instruction in middle school, I began my long self-taught apprenticeship. Now nearly 40 years later living on 30 acres of woodland I have all the tools, space, equipment lumber and skills I could ever want, just wish I had more TIME to enjoy it all before I am old(er). I have dabbled in running a woodworking business, but have found it better as a hobby and not a job. My job feeds the family and my hobby feeds my soul. I am grateful for the experience and the way woodworking makes me feel about myself and my surroundings; to see objects of utility and beauty I have envisioned in my mind and made with my hands around me gives me a connection to my environment and my love of natural wood.
