Loved wood working in high school, but had to go other directions. But now after several "careers", I'm getting back into it. I did have a cabinet shop for a while in the middle eighties. When the building boom went down the tubes my shop went with it. Hopefully I get to retire in about four and a half years. I say "about". I know right to the day. I can hardly wait. I do have a good set of tools. Not the best, but what I can afford. A Rockwell Contractor's saw from my career as a builder and trim carpenter, routers, small, as in little, band saw, 8" jointer, Dewalt planer, HF lathe, more hand tools than I can count from my trim carpenter and builder career and my mechanic career. I do my own remodeling, plumbing, electrical, mechanic, etc. work. It's hard for me to trust anybody's work, but my own.
I was a Firefighter EMT until it took me a week to get over a little room and contents fire. Now I'm a Fire Marshal and Emergency Management Officer.
That will do for now. Don't want to over do it.
