Monthly Book Giveaway - January 2023

Hello Craftisians,

I have been woodworking for almost 3 years now, so I am still very new at this. I am currently the office manager at a doctor's office, prior to that I worked as the office manager at a construction company. I am the mother of 3 boys, 1 out of college, 2 still working hard to finish their degree programs. The father of my boys passed away 3 years ago, so woodworking became a great diversion to get me pasted those sad times. A year ago, I married a wonderful guy who has a great woodworking shop so now I have access to way more and better equipment then what I had, I have learned so much and I really enjoy being creative and being inspired by the creativity of other wood workers.

Take care and happy woodworking.

I have gotten into woodworking about 2-1/2years ago so I am kind of a "newbie" wood worker.  It's a hobby, primarily, but I like building items I know others will enjoy.  Best wishes to all.
