Hello! Josh here. My contributions to the Shop stems from my fascination for and the usefulness of wood. I am a self proclaimed (and many agree) wood nerd and wood geek. A certifiable wood collector who expresses creativity and finds inspiration through the salvaging of discarded urban-cut trees. Cutting down a tree is a mournful event, but to cut a tree down and discard it as trash is positively criminal. A tree is way too beautiful to be discarded! Making beautiful, heirloom quality objects that will be preserved and passed down through generations from its wood is a tribute to the tree itself as much as it is a tribute to the maker. And so, here I am: A yard full of wood, a few chainsaws, and a humble sawmill; a workshop full of tools and sawdust; and, a (soon to be full) Shop full of wonderful wooden treasures! Have a look around and come back often! Things will be changing rapidly as we get moved in good at our new home at www.goodwinscustomcrafts.com. And last, but not least, let me introduce these two rascals: Annabelle and Zoey. They keep me company when I am out in the shop and keep an eye on things when I am off gathering more wood. They are the Wood Yard supervisors, and love to climb on woodpiles and nap in mountains of sawdust.
