I am 41 Live in Arlington Texas with my wonderfully good looking wife, one daughter (the other comes home to do laundry) , one son who visits when on leave from the Navy, four poodles and 1 cat. In addition to this I am six foot three, 245 pounds and have a Baritone voice. I am about as Blue collar as God made man with a little bit of Redneck, Euro-trash and, techno-geek all mixed in for flavor. I like fantasy and science fiction and rarely watch TV (yes my wife really is a saint returned to earth to put up with me) My favorite holiday is Halloween, I like Irish Whiskey neat, Good beer, and I love hamburgers.
I have been Turning for a couple of years or so and love spending time with my lathe. I have done assorted different types of wood work since I was little playing in my Grandfather and my great grandfathers shops.
