I was a truck driver and trucking company owner for many years. I also did residential and commercial construction, everything from layout to concrete to framing, roofing and finishing.
I learned wood working from my dad when I was about 6 years old and am just now getting back into it... 50 years later.
Presently I am the manager of a small RV park where I also have a small wood shop and am honing my skills.
