shop happens. vol 1

the musings of a quirky woodworker.

  So here we are; 2015 is coming to an end and a new chapter of my life is about to begin. I use the word "chapter" life is anything but a well written book mapped out neatly in 15 page chunks. It's more of a pick your own adventure novel that's missing a few pages. Needless to say, this is one adventure that sort of took me by surprise! I never anticipated becoming a woodworker, much less starting a business. Yet, as I humbly attempt to ingratiate myself into the vast and awe inspiring world of woodworking, I feel the need to share my thoughts, experiences (both good and bad), and feelings on getting a business started on your own, learning a craft, and being passionate about what you do and who you are. All this in the hopes that others who may have similar interests can feel confident in pursuing their goals. So, if you're already reading this: Thanks!  I hope you enjoy the site and make sure to check in regularly for new posts so you can follow along on this crazy journey.
