I like to make furniture, create ways to increase space in the shop, and make ways to work on projects easier.

Newly Retired (2017) former bartender in the 80"s, became a 20+ years Pit Boss in the 90's with stints in Lake Tahoe & Kansas City but mainly in Las Vegas. As you can see I had been been dealing with the drunks for over my entire working career. I finally realized I too was one of them during that time and decided in 2012 that life just may be better enjoying a beverage only on special occasions, limiting it to 1 drink that day if I decide to have a drink at all. After all, how can you go to a ball game without a beer with your hot dog? It's UN-American! And believe me - there is much more joy in savoring and enjoying one drink then being drunk. I began directing my focus on creating a woodworking shop beginning sometime in October, 2012. I can truly say my time and money is now going in a fruitful direction (woodworking) that feeds my body, mind, and soul.
