I have been nominated by the wonderful @gmbdesign2017 to do a "5 facts". So thanks Glenn for making me do this... I mean giving me the joys of being able to do this... So I'm Kyle (the one on the left, dur), and here are a few things you might not know about me: .
1. I just recently reached 1 year of woodworking. I didn't mean to fall in love with woodworking, it just happened. It started out with my girlfriend and I talking about a new kitchen table & bench. We looked and couldn't find what we wanted (without taking a second mortgage on the house), so we decided to make our own. She designed/I built. I borrowed her dad's miter saw, and never stopped. The table & bench turned out good for a first project, but I definitely had a lot to learn. I started getting my own tools and building my skills from there. I really love what I've learned so far and excited to see what's to come! .
2. I'm a weirdo... I mean vegetarian... meh, same thing. I like my animal buddies too much to kill/eat them. I was not in the greatest shape before and lost 20 bad pounds as soon as I cut meat out. I definitely feel much better since. I like it and I won't change. I also am not one to preach or shove my ways onto others. If someone is interested, and asks about things, I will be more than happy to tell everything I know/feel for as long as they want. But if you are not interested, then that's 100% up to you. .
3. I have and have had many different hobbies. Some of them include(d): stamp collecting, rock tumbling, wood burning, soccer, baseball, hockey, rugby, running (the first and only race I have ever done is the Spartan race. Haven't heard of it? check it out. It was so much fun), biking (as much of a "NYC messenger" style as I can in mellow Ottawa), cars (I was a mechanic many moons ago but still love fixing/racing/driving. Subaru FTW!), photography, piano, drums, kayaking, skateboarding, snowboarding, woodworking, and many many more. Keep reading on in the comments below!
