Hi, my name is Michael. I'm a semi-retired building contractor. I've gone from hand tools to all power tools. I have returned to hand chisels and a mallet. I guess I missed swinging a well balanced hammer!

I live with Terri Lynne my wife of 9 years. She does beautiful intarsia work and is very inspirational to work with. She is a very talented artist in many fields!
