Location: Rockford Illinois

Currently, I live in the Northern Illinois area. While in the U.S. Navy(at a shore command) my roommate tought me carpentry. When I got out it was the best paying job I could find and built houses on and off for years while putting myself thuough college. The last part of my college career I was working in a machine shop making large milling machines. When that business shut down I somehow ended up in banking. My heart is in manufacturing and woodworking so to that end I bought a ShopBot CNC Router. Lots of possibilities there but the hard part is where to start what to make that sells? However, if there is something someone needs that I can help with repetative parts, 3D carving or whatever ya need I would be happy to help if I can. Lumberjocks is a great site alot of knowledge and support I look forward to talking to as many of you as I can and learning as much as I can. My goal is to make a living in woodwork.
