Location: San Diego
Website:

Retired in 2003 after 30 years as a mechanical engineer with the Navy. I've built two wooden sea kayaks from kits made by Chesapeake Light Craft. I've also built a Murphy Bed for my guestroom, cabinets for my garage, and various other things. I also enjoy woodturning, making pens and pencils and bowls, etc.

I also do some metalwork with a mini lathe and a mini mill, recent acquisitions after thinking about it for 35 years or so, ever since I spent a year as an apprentice tool and die maker. It seemed that I was always thinking "if I had a lathe/milling machine I could just make"...whatever item I was searching the stores for at the time - now I can and do just make whatever it is I need, whether it's a spacer for the luggage rack on one of my bicycles or a shoulder bolt for the pannier on one of my motorcycles. Saves a lot of frustrating trips to hardware stores.

Other hobbies include motorcycling, bicycling, camping - in an RV as well as in a tent, kayaking, classical guitar, photography and probably a few others too.
