Location: Lansing, Kansas
Website:

I am a retired Army officer and firefighter (the careers overlapped!) What started out as a hobby became a business after retiring from the Army. When the business became too much like work, I went back to the fire business where I now work as a state fire trainer. Now at least I have some time to return to my hobby. Though, it seems that most of my woodworking lately has been building props and equipment for work! It's a vicious circle, this hobby!

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

Thank you all for the kind welcome. I have been following this site on a daily basis and have “stolen” numerous great ideas. I look forward to learning so much more from you. I will try to share some of my work as I figure out how to do so.

Cheers!

Re: Track Saw. Thanks Firehouse. When I make some smaller ones (soon) I’ll do it like you suggest. I think your idea is better. THANKS
