An IT professional by trade and woodworker (and potter and baker and photographer and . . . ) by choice, I enjoy the process of learning, experimenting and creating one-of-a-kind items in my shop (or kitchen or wherever).
I especially enjoy learning new things. I like seeing something – whether a woodworking project, a pastry or process – and saying, “hmmm – I can do that!” even if I’ve never done it before.
From a pencil sketch or picture I see on the internet to a finished product, the joy comes from knowing I learned something new, helped my boys experience something unique in today’s digital world and hopefully that my work will be used and abused by someone in their daily life.
