I'm new to wood woodworking and love an adventure. I am a US Marine through and through; I suppose that's why I love a challenge! Being a "disabled vet" at a youngish age motivates me to reach all of the goals and experiences I set for myself. Wood working feels right. The smell of a fresh cut board, the feel of lumber, and the rich grains that express themselves during finishing... I want to be a part of that.

I'm married to the most wonderful woman in the world who encourages and supports my tool/hobbie/exploration habit. She is perusing a masters degree in clinical counseling.

My dog aka the shop Supervisor is the best. She is truly the greatest companion and service dog ever! Her name is Zero and I talk about that silly pit often. She really thinks she's human! Haha!

I'm a quick learner and digest information quickly. I recently retired early and completed a bachelor degree in communication (how humans communicate). I will also be perusing a masters degree in clinical counseling but in the science/research approach rather than arts approach like my wife.

I've been curious about everything my whole life. This is my first time blogging or being apart of a forum or group online. Everyone is really great here so far. There is so much knowledge and technique and LJ's are really inviting and helpful.

A belated welcome to LumberJocks. Thank you for your service to our country. We won’t hold being a Marine against you, after all, every Navy needs a few good Marines…

Look forward to seeing your projects.

And always remember…

Be Careful!


-- Herb, Florida - Here's why I close most messages with "Be Careful!"
