Mike's Woodcraft


January 6, 2012


I thought I'd create this little space to chronicle my progress in the realm of woodcraft.  As the majority of visitors to this page will already know, I'm a journeyman cabinetmaker.  Most will also already know that it's been approximately 100 years since I did it for a living in any meaningful way.  After many years out of the profession and talking about embracing other, more artistic, aspects of woodcraft I have finally decided to quit talking and start doing.  The pages that will be linked to this one will serve as sort of a "digital diary" of that progress.  I will try to keep everything cross-linked to my Facebook page, should anyone have a strong desire to pat me on the back and tell me how wonderful a project looks (or offer constructive criticism for that matter!).  I hope all visitors enjoy!
