I began woodworking at an early age, getting in touble for using dad's tools in the basement and working on cub scout projects. I took a year-long woodworking class in high school and my mother and sisters still use some of the projects. I lived in Seattle in the 1980's and there was a woodworking store/shop across from my office that I visited frequently. I hung out with the owner and starting reading Krenov and Tage Frid, bought my first table saw and made simple little projects. Through the next decades I did lots of house renovation, kitchen cabinets, built-in libraries, and the like. At some point I decided that I wouldn't build any more things I couldn't take with me and decided to focus on furniture. I became interested in turning a couple of years ago. I'm an academic at heart I have a huge collection of woodworking books and magazines. I've also taken several classes at varioius places, mainly at the Connecticut Valley School of Woodworking with director Bob Dyke, Phil Lowe, and Mario Rodriguez. I've also studied turning with Corey Anderson and the great David Ellsworth. I've lived in Iowa, Japan, Seattle, Massachusetts, and now Connecticut.

My wife and I have a seventeen-year-old daughter and two Shetland Sheepdogs. In addition to woodworking I like reading, golf, travel and now I spend too much on woodworking forums.

Cheers,
Glen

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
