Location: Cape Coral, FL USA

My name is David Berthelette. A pilot by profession but enjoy a long list of passions. Woodworking is truly near the top of that list. I also love to write and teach and share my experiences and knowledge with other artisans. While I was learning to fly, I was an electronic technician, a field in which my father is an expert. My knowledge and experience is limited but I still like to dabble in electronics as a hobby. I have put some of this knowledge to use in my shop. (See my Automatic Dust Collector Switch.)

I was born and raised in Massachusetts and will always consider it my first home. My teenage and young adult years were spent in the beautiful state of Maine where I developed a love for the outdoors spending hours in the woods hunting, hiking and enjoying the splendor of God's creation.
Flying for a living has given me opportunities to live in other parts of the country including Southwest Florida where I currently reside with the top of my passion list, my wife and three children.

Welcome to Lumberjocks. The projects are an inspiration, the information is priceless and the people are supportive. The only problem is, the site can get addictive.

God Bless

What a great site and more importantly, a great community of people. I have been involved in many forums from motorcycles to computers and of course airlines and airplanes. Never have I had such a quick, warm welcome from so many.

Thank you all for your welcomes and your kind comments.

I can see why this site is so addictive. LOL
