Retired Valuer. I have a well equiped garage sized workshop & am interested in most woodworking projects. No formal training other than weekend work with a carpenter friend a few years ago & work in a sawmill when I was a teenager. Enjoy small & large projects.

Thanks for the welcome Todd. The nickname started when the grand kids came along. My son thought it was a bit of a joke to call me Grumpy (instead of Gramps or Pop etc) & it stuck.

Grumpy:

What can you tell me about a bar that you were making for your wife.

Or should I give her a call?

Thanks for the welcome Grumpy :)

I can’t get enough of this site. I’ve spent most of the evening just looking at projects. I’m pretty awestruck at the artistry.
