I got serious about woodworking in the early '80s to indulge my creative urges and furnish our home. I enjoy converting an idea and/or a piece of wood into furniture that is useful and pleasing to my eye. I'm lucky in having a wife who encourages me and also likes what I make.

After my Cold War career in the Air Force, I spent 25 years with IBM, AT&T, and DEC in computer sales and marketing, taking an early retirement when I was 51. For the last 20 years we have lived on our 6 acre rural property amongst the trees and critters, located in Haycock Township, PA.

Thanks for the welcome messages. My early impression of LJ is that it’s a friendly and mutually supportive group of folks representing a range of skills and woodworking interests. I am particularly impressed by the great projects that have been posted. I hope to make a contribution.

Thanks for the dado blades, they are very nice, cut clean and very accurate on the cuts. I would also like to thank-you for showing us your workshop and beautiful house. All of the nice projects you made and all of the beautiful artwork is wonderful. I’m jealous of your workshop, you got all that room and even a nap room LOL. I would love to keep in contact with you and hopefully I can pick up some of your skills. I never looked at building projects the way you do. Again thanks a bunch and feel free to email or call anytime.
