I think I’ve always loved working with my hands growing up.  I grew up in the country building traps and basketball hoop backboards for things to do.  I remember walking through the mall in high school and seeing a shopsmith and feeling a desired to work with wood.   I moved to California pursuing a career in high tech in 1988 and later learned about James Krenov, his books and the school he taught at in Fort Bragg.  Since the mid 90’s, I’ve been coming up to Fort Bragg for lectures, classes and furniture shows.   Now,  I think Erin Irber said it best in her bio,  “Living the dream of woodworking at the Krenov School.”
