Location: Suffolk VA

I am a retired construction engineer, I worked has a construction manager for a major tire maker. I mainly worked as a instrument engineer but the last 10 years I did quite a lot of mechanical projects such as piping systems and HVAC.

I have been working with wood for 52 years. I started in Industrial arts class in the seventh grade, been hooked ever since.

After retirement I moved to Virginia to be close to my wife's family and love the coastal area. I built a new shop shortly after moving and I am still working on it. I think it will always be a work in progress.

I spend most of my time fixing things around my house, my other house, my mom's house. my sister in laws house, you get the idea. I'm handy so I never run out of honey dos.
