Location: Fairburn, Ga
Website:

Next month I will be 70 years young. I have 3 children and 3 grandchildren.

I am retired from the Navy during which I flew as loadmaster and crew chief on the Navy's version of the DC-9.

I worked for many years selling to the meat industry and had the pleasure of traveling around most of the US. I am on my third retirement working as The Facility Director of a private school that works with children with learning problems.

My shop is 24' x 24' with a 9' ceiling. I have a number of my Fathers tools that I use. I use my shop to make things for sell, project at the school and my church.

Welcome to Lumberjocks. The projects are an inspiration, the information is priceless and the people are supportive. The only problem is, the site can get addictive.

God Bless

Hey sounds good. I’ll keep you in mind. I’m still currently piecing together my shop as it is. It’s coming along slowly, but it’s all about the journey I guess.

Have your say...
