Living life married to the prettiest and smartest gal I ever met.
Self employed energy consultant / building performance analyst.
Woodworking suits me well because I inherited an engineering mind from my father and a little artistic flair from my mother.
I prefer to build small, practical projects. While it's within my ability to build a dresser or dining room table, I really have no interest in doing so at this point.
Woodworking is my Zen and has taught me a lot about patience and planning. There aren't many other things I'd rather be doing than making noise and sawdust out in the garage.

Last weekend, I joined a couple other sawdust junkies on a trip to the Wood Expo (aka the Peachtree tool sale). Among the displays and demonstrations, there were 4 companies selling CNC routers, and one selling a laser engraver. I think these thin...
A few years ago, I happened to find a nice old oak school desk chair on the curb in someones trash. I had been looking for such a chair to make into a guitar players chair. It was one of those chair-desk combos that originally had an arm de...
I thought I’d add a few more pictures to the blog tonight. First, a picture of my first temporary feeding method, the pie pan of syrup. You can see that there are a couple wasps hanging around. The sticks are so the bees don’t drown...
I just opened up the hive and installed my first honey super on top. These are slightly shorter boxes that the bees store honey in instead of brood (typically). Some people use a queen excluder to keep her from laying brood in the honey super, but...
