After Easter and Communions and business trips I am finally back home with some spare time for my new passion! To help get me into the shop I decided to participate in the 2014 Summers 2x4 Woodworking competition. What that entailed was me build something out of a 2x4, 8 feet long and doing a YouTube build video. Actually this would be my first YouTube video. Right in the beginning of filming I had a close call which caused me to make a change in my project.

After that I wanted to actually build something more fun and creative so on the last day of the competition at 4:00 in the afternoon I get the bright idea to try to build and video edit a project in 8 hours! I was pleased with how it came out.

So I didn't win but that was OK. I wanted to see what it was like to actually do a build video and you know what? I had a blast! I really enjoyed it and will continue to do build videos. Steve Carmichael actually won the competition with an amazing project...he built a fully functioning guitar out of a 2x4....a GUITAR! A very well deserved win for Steve.

So be prepared for a LOT of content to come down the pike....a lot of exciting and fun stuff is on it's way.
Damn it is good to be back! :-)
