This website has grown out of a consistent desire to organize my creative projects into a form which I can share with others: family, friends, and netizens who may find the information useful, helpful, or just plain fun.
I’m a woodworker, relatively new to the hobby (been doing it about 8 years or so now) and I really enjoy it. I primarily work out of my 1 car garage sized shop, simply making whatever comes to mind, or off the shelf of the magazine rack. I do take requests from friends and family occasionally, and I enjoy making gifts for people.
I’m also a builder of sorts of a variety of things, including Lego, electronic kits, and other various and assorted fun things. So from the roots of the Bushwood shop, I renamed the website The Brick and Board to reflect my two loves, Lego and Woodworking.

The images and text are my own, with the exception of the handplane illustration, which I obtained from this website, after searching Google Images for handplanes. The wood information and wood sample images in the wood archives were borrowed from Woodworkers Source, a great mail order company from which I bought my walnut and padauk for my tongue drum project.

I did most of the website modifications myself. As a network administrator by trade, I know my way around HTML, web design, and blog design fairly well. I’m not an expert, but I get by.
