When it's your birthday and your super amazing girlfriend gets you some new toys what's the first thing you do with them? You take a super cool picture of all of them in front of the fireplace to show off to the Instagram world 😂 I'm so excited and can't wait to use them all! Also so thankful that she is being so supportive of me following my passion! #microjig #microjigs #dewalttough #dewalt #milescraft #bowproducts #featherboard #woodworking #woodworker #bigplans

I finally wrapped up this massive unit. Never have I attempted anything this big before. It was definitely a learning experience for sure. Glad its finally installed. #woodworking #woodworker #carpentry #dewalttough #dewalt #smallbusiness #moreprojectscoming

Step one of getting the business going. Getting electric to the garage so I can actually use my tools without running extension cords from the house. Now to call the best electrician I know, my father, to run the pipes and wire for me. 🙂 It's a slow process but it will all happen eventually...right?? #smallbusiness #woodworker #woodworking #carpenter #carpentry #newbusinesscomingsoon #cantwaittosetuptheshop

By far the biggest build I have attempted to this date. Massive corner entertainment center. With no electric in the garage still glad I have all my handy @dewalttough tools. Loving my new dewalt light. Really helping to brighten my dark work area. Loving my kreg jig as well 👍🏻#dewalttough #dewalt #carpentry #carpenter #smallbusiness #bigplans #kreg #kregjig #slowandsteady

All glued up and clamped. Small coffee table to come. Used all the clamps I had, which isn't many might I add. Using resin for the first time on this project. At least I mess it up it's for me so that's okay right? 🤔

When the school gets an award they make you build a frame for it. At least it keeps me extra busy 😂

So for the big news! I found an amazing girl who I am lucky enough to call my girlfriend! I bought my very first house all on my own! And to top it off I will be converting the garage into a woodshop and officially opening up my own business! 😁

Thanks @tool_barn for helping myself and the school purchase this new spindle sander. I wouldn't let the students use it till I got a chance to try it out 😂 they are all very excited about it though 👍
