When I was a kid, I loved watching my dad working in his wood shop. He's been a carpenter his entire life. He taught me to love working with wood, to be creative, and to see potential in everything. I started out refinishing furniture, and eventually worked on building my own things as well. It began with a garden stand, then planter boxes, cutting boards, and a now line of tabletop gaming tools. Aside from woodworking, much of my free time is spent gaming. I play in several groups, and am also a fledgling dungeon master, running two games of my own.
