Retired, ex mainframe systems programmer. Now fulltime recreational woodworker majoring in pens, boxes, puzzles, T&J Toys and occasional small furniture.
Design everything (and I mean everything) in Sketchup prior to touching tools. I am fortunate to have the use of a laser and I like to laser cut pieces in MDF to use as either layout patterns (3mm MDF) or routing templates (6mm MDF). For small intricate parts I occasionally laser cut, however, removing the burn marks is more a hassle than hand cutting.
I'm a real gadgets man and squander many a $ on new inovations and handy tool supplements. I also like to make jigs and design my own gadgets and while at times a purchased jig may be cheaper than a shop made one sometimes they may be improved for personal use. I often use 3D printed parts designed in SketchUp to supplement my wooden jigs in creating wood pieces for models.
But most of all I love a glass or two of red... that's a lie.. a bottle or two.. actually I tried to buy a pub but I got prematurely retrenched.
-- There's two ways to do things... My way or the right way.. LBD
