I have been a "professional" wood worker since 1982. still haven't learned everything there is to learn about making things, love making things.
furniture, any style
my own tools,
my own boat (two, would like to make another),
harps, mandolins, lutes, banjo's, dulcymers and strummers
I also have a forge for making modifying or repairing my tools.
I am working up to brass casting again.
I used to have a motorcycle
I really enjoy sailboats and canoes
I keep bees (if you want a money making hobby, try it)
I fight in Medieval combat armor (SCA)
and generally have too many hobbies.
we ( Dr Wife and 3 yr old son) have moved into a new house so projects should be coming right allong soon (we need chairs and a dining room set, more bookcases, probably built ins, a bed, another bed, repairs to said house maybe a new garage)
Update 8/11/15: just an FYI for those persons in the SCA (Society for Creative Anachronism). I am THL Kai Saerpren (call me "K"), esquired to The Earl Aethelmearc, Sir Yngvar the Dismal. I live in Bhakail. I make things out of wood. I teach hand tool woodworking at Pennsic, And would like to do more teaching if I could find a venue that is appropriate.
