I am a teacher. Shop in the garage. Truck & van are on the drive.
I liked toodling with my dad on the basement workbench as a kid. I completed some 4H woodworking projects too. Then I left for college, got married, landed the first job, had kids, got a mortgage completed my master's degree and NOW I'm getting back into woodworking.
I like to build outdoor stuff.
