Naturally, I like woodworking as a hobby, but an ice hockey tournament will easily get me out of the shop :)
When it isn't a thousand degrees outside (hey, it's Arizona), I like to go salsa dancing.
I got interested in woodworking in January 2008 while on a business training trip. Bored mindless, I was Googling for some simple remodeling questions and Marc Spagnuolo's site (TheWoodWhisperer.com) came up. This was way early in TWW's legacy. Somehow, I got interested. Things would have been considerably different had I known a salsa club was just a block and a half away! d'oh! So, as I look around at what this hobby has cost me, I figure Marc owes me dinner, BBQ by preference. :)
So what's in a name? My dad used to love coming over on the weekend to be in my shop; he was never a woodworker, but loved being in the shop. He would mostly ask me impossible questions during an impromptu project... stuff like "how are you going to join those two?" !?!?! :) Early on, my nemesis was the tape measure: I could measure something 3 times then add an inch "for good measure" and come up a half-inch shy. That was a never-ending source of amusement for him so it became the name of the blog. R.I.P. dad; miss you. For the most part, I don't have that problem (as much) anymore.
