Location: Melbourne, Australia
Happily married, a family man with two wonderful daughters and five glorious grandchildren.
Living in Australia; Canadian born and raised; moved to Australia in the late 80's; now a citizen of both Australia and Canada.
I retired in 2002 and am spending my time enjoying family, working behind the scenes in my church, and making sawdust.
UPDATE: I have not been seen much recently on LumberJocks - but I do visit from time-to-time. Due to health concerns, I am now spending less time in my workshop, so have concentrated more on my second hobby - photography. You can see examples of my photography at http://www.dpb-photos.com/ Please visit.
