Welcome to the forum! Add your first name to your profile so it clears the N/a in the side panel and so we'll know what to call you.

What sort of woodworking are you doing or planning? We like photos so you can show us your shop, tools, projects, etc. whenever you're ready.

All, Thank you for the welcome!

I've cleared the n/a - sorry, didn't notice that yesterday.

Current Workshop - It's scattered between a garage and a basement room that "might" become a dedicated workshop. At this stage in my house I do not have a dedicated shop or outbuilding. I'm surviving fine for now - sacrifices.

How did I get here.....
My wife and I have flipped houses over the past 10 years in 2 parts of our state. Northern WI - Tomahawk area and SE Wisconsin. Each step of the way as well as each house I've learned new skills - which I LOVE. I guess I'm a good student of the "trades", but my day job is more of an analyst and at 48 years old don't find the satisfaction in it like building, creating finishing and evolving a room, house, or thing. So, starting to look forward to my 55th Birthday and freedom from corporate America. Love to buy a nice resort on a lake in Northern WI. I can work on, fix up, rent... So, that's the where did I come from and where do I want to go.

Current Projects - Home Theatre woodwork(Need to build columns and sound panels), Gun Room Woodwork, oh yea, need to work on improving some closets for my daughter and wife.

Oh yea, I don't sleep a lot and being idle doesn't work for me. I always need to be working on something.

I know what you mean about that satisfaction factor. I was a consultant and led workshops and seminars for 35 years. Took up woodworking because my results in the business were how well my clients did. Woodworking is physical. Handle stuff, make stuff, finish stuff. Real, solid, measurable. Also love to do DIY projects in the house. But not interested in flipping this one, finally got it just right.

I recall there being some mighty good deer hunting around your playgrounds.

Im in a current house that we'll probably stay put in for awhile. Actually love it.

Yes, the deer hunting in this state is pretty good. Unfortunately, chronic wasting disease has been found in parts of the state. The DNR then calls for 100% eradication in that county.
