I'm a turner, hand tool woodworker, and antique machine user.
Also an apprentice blacksmith, winery manager, and father. I have two restored classic machines, a 56 Walker Turner tablesaw and a 50's Delta 20" bandsaw.
My current major project is building a bandsaw mill to take advantage of timber on the family farm.
