I love to build things. During the day, I’m an independent software developer.Â I’ve worked on several different types of systems for different clients ranging from major banks to dot-com startups, and I’m happy enough making my living at it.Â After spending a day in front of a computer typing away, it’s nice to use my hands for something other than hitting keys.Â Building physical things gives me a bit of balance, and lets me do something where I can see and touch what I’ve accomplished.
Recently, I’ve been building things out of wood in particular.Â Since I’ve found so many blogs and personal websites so educational, I decided that I would try and add something to the discussion.
I’m mostly interested in building furniture, and I throw in some turning in between just to keep things interesting.Â I also enjoy home renovation and maintenance projects more than I ever figured I would before I owned a home.
In this blog, I intend to document in pictures, video and words, the things that I’ve built and what I learned building them.
