Location: Port Hueneme, CA

I am currently in the US Navy and stationed at Port Hueneme, CA. Married to a wonderful woman who allows me to hibernate in the garage and I have two gorgeous (their horns hold up the halo on their heads!) little girls a three year old and a two year old. They are definitely my inspiration in life.
A quick little history of me I was born and raised in rural Nebraska. That is were I received my first introduction to wood working. My grandfather was always repairing something on the ranch so natural I wanted to help to. God bless him because I think all I ever did was make a mess. I have been in the navy now for just over 10 years and in the last couple years I have started getting back into woodworking.
I am sure you all know how it starts! You find yourself wandering around a store see something you like look at the price tag and say ^&*($%&!@#$@#!!!!! I could make that for half of what they want! Atleast thats how my hobbies began. So here I am now trying to perfect my woodworking skills and thankfuly I found this web site. You guys and gals have been a great help. I am still working on my router skills. Some how I never thought a router would be so tricky! So if any of you have some good router tips I would love to hear them.
That is a quick little info on me. Thanks for taking the time to look at my bio and keep up the superb projects guys!

Chad, thank you for the the nice comment on my stone cold table. I know you posted it a long time ago. My house was struck by lighting, and lost my computer, along with numerous other things. So thanks-
