I'm a late-30's guy who;s married with 2 great kids. I'm also one of those guys who's into MANY things. I'm into playing the guitar first and foremost and audio-engineering. Woodworking has always been a core interest since hammering nails next to my dad while he worked. Also love machining metal working and welding. Oh, then there's ATV's and fishing. Let's not forget digital video creation and home renovations. I also love to restore things - anything. There is a satisfaction I get when uncovering something's real beauty underneath all the dirt and muck. A little cleaning, buffing, oil and some new paint can return almost anything to a like new condition.
