I’m a Little (old) Left-handed Lady who Loves the Lord, Lumber, (and aLliterations). I’m a re-tired (that means tired all over again) advertising manager who has been playing with wood for about 45 years.
I’m practical and frugal, with a workshop of CHEAP tools. I enjoy making furniture and built-ins on which we would never otherwise splurge. I make the simple ones with straight lines. My husband makes the gorgeous ones with curves, carving, and details (which usually end up as gifts). As I noted from another woodworker signature "I’m not good, but I’m slow" which, with my list of woodworking projects, should keep me busy another 50 years.
I enjoy just about any activity that results in an end product and engages both mind and body -- woodworking, furniture refinishing, upholstery, crocheting, knitting, tatting, needlework, macrame . . . and the list goes on. And I love fishing . . . when the end product is fish to eat! (I don't fish to "catch and release." I can waste enough valuable time without entertaining myself needlessly.)
And I enjoy learning new things; that's why I enjoy this website.
