My name is Jeff Wagner and I live in Bellevue Nebraska. Go HUSKERS!
I have lived in this area for a majority of my life. Like most men my age(39 as of 4-30-2007) a majority of my earliest exposure to "real" woodworking came in Jr. High wood shop class. My first shop teachers name was Mr. Hansen. Funny, I didn't know I remembered his name until just now. Anyway. I had some experiance with my father doing stuff around the house, but that could hardly compare to woodshop @ school. I took shop classes through Senior High. That was it. No more shop. Oh the agony!
Life goes on, you go to college, start a life etc.. I started a life of construction jobs from well drilling to dirt work to general construction to finally environtmental construction. That was the unknown key.
That job led to my first sales job. That job led to selling plumping wholesale. On the road. Anyone who has ever sold wholesale plumbing with alot of travel will tell you sooner or later you will be looking through the want ads. There it was. A sales job I Knew I could succeed at. A woodworking store. Machinery! You mean I get paid for selling Tools! Wood? Exotics, Domestics, Veneers! You really stock all this stuff? All the Time? I took the job. Fast foward 13 + years and I've been selling wood and tools for someone at one place or another. Through that time I've been lucky enough to buy, trade etc.. enough tools to make me a Happy Boy! In that time I've been lucky enough to marry a woman who "gets" me and my fasination and slight addiction to all things woodworking. I think shes lucky enough to be married to someone who knows how to use them pretty damn well. If I do say so myself. Although not at fast as those people on DIY network!
As you can tell, its a fair bet I love this field of constant study. The ever changing art of working wood.
