Location: Pflugerville, TX (Suburb of Austin - Central TX)
I'm Bob and I live in Pflugerville (the P is silent) Texas which is a suburb of Austin, the capital of Texas. I'd like to tell you how I got here and how I picked the name "Back tothe Wood".
When I was in High School, my Dad set up a small wood shop in our basement. The only power tools were a TS, jointer and a lathe. Everything else was by hand - a brace and bits for drilling, etc. I went off to college, had a job, married, raised a family and finally retired. (That seems a lot quicker than it really happened.)
I didn't like this retired stuff. A friend mentioned volunteering for Habitat for Humanity, and I've been doing it ever since.
I got so excited about this, I started buying used tools for myself and started re-learning. So now I am "Back to the Wood" and glad to be here.
-- Silence & smile are two powerful tools. Smile is the way to solve many problems & Silence is the way to avoid many problems.
