Location: Renton, WA

Spent most of my adult life as a Sales Executive. I hawked cell phones to The Army & Navy up and down the West Coast. Then a few years ago my hips blew up and I found my lifestyle a bit less active. Attempts at returning to my former life failed and I found myself with way to much time and not enough to do. Then one day my boys got all excited about their Cub Scout Pine Wood Derby, next thing ya know I am buying a Shopsmith! LOL The rest is Dust & Shavings!

Now I am making an attempt at starting a small craft woodworking business. It is very challenging and there are quite a few obstacles. But at the end of the day it keeps me off the couch. The added bonus is that when I am in the shop I am pretty much pain free. My stamina isn't what I wish it was but I am muddling through.
