Location: San Diego, CA
Website: esty.com go to store: Zesleesdesigns

State of Iowa transplant living in San Diego, CA since 1962. Graduated from San Diego State University with an undergraduate degree in Accounting. A CPA, currently working as a CFO for a
Staffing agency in San Diego.

As an enlisted man in the US Air Force during the Vietnam conflict, I spent my four year obligation stationed in San Antonio, Texas. I met my wife, Sue, there and we have three wonderful adult sons. We just celebrated our 40th wedding anniversary with a trip back to San Antonio where we retraced old footsteps.

I started woodworking as a hobby in 1990 when I purchased a Shopsmith Mark V. I still have and use that wonderful machine. Over the years, I purchased many accessories, such as, jointer, plate jointer, sliding table, stacked dado blades, conical sanding disk, dust collector and lathe tools and accessories. I also have a Milwaukee compound mitre saw, and circular saw, Porter Cable plunge router, Craftsman band saw and a variety of woodworking clamps.

I enjoy woodworking because I like to create something useful with my own hands. The hobby requires thoughtful planning, forward thinking and careful execution to achieve an acceptable end product. I think my best learning occurs from the mistakes I make.

I recently started turning, pens and bowls, and really enjoy it.
Looking forward to learning even more by participating in this web site.

My other passion is golf and I enjoy playing different courses throughout the world.

-- Bob, San Diego

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
