High School math teacher, minister, and astronomer who enjoys his wife and three kids. Primary hobby is astrophotography (see webpage) and I work part-time as an IT consultant and in small observatory construction and automation. But as a hobby, astronomy requires a lot of time that I no longer have. I have some of my remote, robotic observatory projects in various phases of construction, and am just now able to do some astronomy remotely...but the days of hauling my gear and setting it up are over!
Anyway, you can check out my astrophotography on my webpage at www.allaboutastro.com.
As with all my hobbies (astrophotography, aquaria, and homebrewing), I love woodworking because it encompasses both art and science. Woodworking is something I've loved and enjoyed all my life with my father, in his shop, of course. So, with a new house and full size garage, I thought I'd go ahead and build my own shop...being the first place of my own where I actually have room for a shop!
My father always bought two of everything growing up, so I already had some decent tools - in addition to the nicer tools I've bought myself through the years. He is the one, led by his father before him, who inspired my woodworking, starting back in my teens.
I've added a workshop page, so feel free to tour it there...and I'm thankful to LJs that I have a chance to open it up to you! I hope to post projects soon, but at this point my shop time mostly involves an on-going kitchen remodel and the occasional shop fixture.
I'm not an expert at woodworking, but not a notice either. Looking forward to learning a lot more from all the great Lumberjocks!
