Retired from heavy construction,specializing in high pressure piping.Got into woodworking about 7 years ago.
Try to build everything from china cabinets to keepsake boxes. Most ambicious projects so far have been a cherry curio cabinet(from rough lumber to finished product) and a sewing machine cabinet for my wife (Rockler plans)
I've built several items for friends and neighbors with good results. Everything I do,I try to do just a little bit better than the last project.
