Many folks call themselves a self-taught woodworker. I suppose this is technically true for me also, since I've never attended a formal class -- grade 7 and 8 shop classes notwithstanding.
But this does strike me as a bit pretentious, and maybe even a bit dishonest. For even though I may be lacking in formal one-on-one classroom instructions, I surely have been taught this craft.
I've been taught by every woodworker who ever wrote a magazine article that I read, or woodworking TV show that I watched, or even shared some advice and pointers on an Internet forum that I've visited.
As the saying goes, we're standing on the shoulders of giants.
This is a collection of documents showing various woodworking projects and related writings from the past number of years. Some of these web pages provide fairly detailed instructions and commentary, and some are nothing much more than a few photos or diagrams.
Please note that several of these projects date from over 10 years ago, when I did not have a digital camera. Hence the photo quality is not always the best on the older projects. (Not to mention that the project quality might vary...)
I like to write, in case you hadn't noticed. I also like to build things with wood. Hence, "Words And Wood".
(and no, the fact that every other domain name I thought up before "wordsnwood" was either taken or horrible has nothing whatsoever to do with this...)
I have a day job, not to mention a family. Which means that I don't really have enough time nor energy to do all the woodworking projects that I'd like to for my own interest and purposes.
In other words, at this time I do not do custom woodworking for sale. What you see on this website is what you get.
