Hello All,

I'm Bill Cowan, happily married for 26 years to my lovely wife Sheila. Born in a sleepy little town in Georgia in 1961. Born again, in 1989 (and woke up).

I've been an electrical engineer for nearly 25 years, currently at the job that pays as Director of Engineering for Macy's Distribution Centers. I'm also CEO and owner of my fitness business and my woodworking business. I've decided to give my love of wood, sawing on this, cuttin on that , a whirl and have basically fallen in love with the smell and wonder of creating "something" from nothing all over again. I'm pretty much a BoxMaker at heart, but am venturing into fine furniture, rocking chairs and the like. Hope to post some soon. As an Old Timer on the Marathon bridge once told me "If I don't see ya later, I'll see ya up there!"

ICN,

Bill

I just checked out all your projects you have posted and they are all real nice. I always stop and look closer at the figured wood. I was told by a good cabinet maker that every thing is just a box. You have some really nice ones. Good work.
