Hi and welcome! I’m Doug and this is my little internet home. I write, share general woodworking advice and projects.
Who Am I
I’m married to Kathy and have 3 boys, Tyler, Clay, and Ryan. We have a daughter-in-law Amy and a wonderful grandson Sam! I’ve been a professional home builder for the last 20 years and professional painter for 30 years. My 2 sons Clay and Ryan now run the painting business and I focus on home building and part-time blogger.
Kathy and I have spent most of our life working and raising our kids. We enjoy the outdoors, camping, fishing, and hiking. We have worked with youth for 20 years through church and camps and helped start “The Bay” a non-profit for at-risk kids located in Lincoln, NE.
As I’ve gotten older I thought it would be fun to start some sort of blog that could offer free advice to others. I chose woodworking based on my experience in the home building profession. I’m hoping to become a full-time blogger in the next 5 years as I transmission out of the home building business.
Why I Blog
There are so many things about this process that have been meaningful and rewarding for me.” Here’s why I love blogging:
- Learning more about woodworking
- Sharing ideas and woodworking plans
- Help others start their own blog
- Develop the blog as a source of income
So join me for this crazy ride as we start into this new venture of blogging!
