The End of All Things (and the Beginning of Others)

Today is my last day at the only law firm I’ve known so far. I have called this firm home since 2008 (plus the summer of 2007), and the leaving is bittersweet.

On the one hand, I am leaving behind some wonderful, brilliant and caring people who have accepted me and my quirks for most of a decade. On the other hand, it was time to make a lifestyle change – the hours at a large Manhattan law firm are arduous and I’m looking forward to more time in the shop.

There will be a whole lot more of this.

There should be a whole lot more of this.

Once I join my new law firm in August, I should have a bit more time for woodworking and certainly added time for writing about woodworking.

Thanks for being a part of the Apartment Woodworker family.  Small changes and big things are ahead.

First thing tomorrow, I’m hitting up the lumber yard for some tool chest carcase pine. But for now, it’s time for a nap.



  1. Congratulations! And, g’luck! Some changes can be intimidating. I have a possible one coming up (similar, actually, to your change) but with a new baby, things get hairy.

    Hopefully my next change of this magnitude will include an air conditioned shop. Minnesota summers are just as brutal as the winters.
