I've been in or around wood almost all of my adult life. I started out as a laborer on a framing crew in the early seventies. Bounced around the framing business for a few years. Took a few years off to serve my country. I went back into residential construction when Uncle Sam no longer required my services. In the early nineties I took a hard left turn and went into machining. I ended up working for Porter Cable, and later Black & Decker as a tool refurbisher. I am currently working as the maintenance department for a medium sized wooden moulding manufacturer. I guess you could consider me semi retired, as I only work three and a half days a week(our company took a large hit when the bubble burst).
Over the years I have acquired or built a lot of tools, but I really don't have a shop. The climate is nice here, I do what little I do on the porch, turning is my current interest, though I'm not accomplished in any way, shape or form.
I'm finding out fast, that there is a large difference between carpentry, and wood-working.
