Location: Southern Germany

Hi all,

I am an American living in Southern Germany. My wife is German and we were married in Denmark when I was stationed in Germany from 1994-96 with the U.S. Army. We moved to Ft. Hood, Texas in 1996 and after I left the Army in 1998, we moved to my home state, Oregon, where I started working in the IT field. I have always loved working with wood and building things. In Junior and High School, I took every wood and metal shop class that I could. During the summers, I worked for my brother's construction company building additions and roofing houses in the Portland, Oregon area. While I was in the military, I was always on the go and didn't have much chance to do any woodworking. When I got out, I slowly started putting together a toolbox and built a basic workbench in the garage. In 2004, my wife and I decided to move back to Germany so that we could be close enough to help her elderly parents. I have been working for an American company from Munich, managing the IT in their German, Danish, and French offices. I took many On 25 June 2011, our daughter was born; since we would like her to grow up in America, we have started planning on moving back to the U.S. That will happen in about 2 years if all goes well. In anticipation of being able to have space again, I have started buying hand tools :) Hopefully, I will have a lot of new tool buying adventures to post. I am amazed and inspired by talent I have seen when browsing through the other LumberJocks projects. I can't wait to make some sawdust myself!
