I worked for US West and Qwest communications retiring in 2001. After a weekend of "retirement" I went to work for Paul Allen's company Vulcan where I was the Operations Manager for Paul's mega-yachts. I left Vulcan two years ago and have been working on a BS in Accounting degree (big change from the yachts!). I am a student at Central Washington University (CWU). I have three more classes to go and I will be done!! Well sort of...need to continue and study for the CPA exam!
I started woodworking back in the mid-80's when I started watching the New Yankee Workshop. I got the bug big time and set about putting together a shop in my garage. My largest and best projects were a pencil post bed with matching end tables and a dining room set. After a divorce in late 1998 I sold much of my machinery and was out of woodworking until about 3 years ago when I go the bug again. I have a General 350 TS, General International 12" jointer, General International 15" planer, MiniMax 16" bandsaw, Performax 16-32 drum sander, Jet Drill Press, Delta Disc/Belt sander, a host of planes and chisels, etc, etc....but I have not built anything of any significance in 10 years! Plus I have a ton of wood working magazines I have collected since the late 80's.
One of the coolest things I have done was to spend a weekend one on one with David Marks in his shop down in Santa Rosa, California. That was a real blast. What a great guy!
