I am a retired Nuclear Power worker. I began woodworking when I was in grammar school with my father. I continued developing my woodworking skills through high school. I went to a technical high school and graduated as a machinist. After high school I worked for a lumber company then I joined the military. After 4 years in the military I got a job at a fairly large cabinetmaking company building custom kitchens. I assembled cabinets for about a year then I transferred to the finishing shop. I shortly became the primary sprayer for the company. I quit the company and started my career in Nuclear Power (Electrician, procedure writer, electrical planner and finally senior surveillance planner).
During my career in Nuclear Power I started a small woodworking shop. That lasted only a couple of years as my main source of income consumed most of my time (overtime hours).
Over the years I added to my house a family room, 2-1/2 car garage, large shed, cabana, large pavilion, sun room, vinyl sided my home and many other projects around the house.
Now that I'm retired I decided to enhance as well as complete my woodworking shop. My entire walk out basement is my shop. In the near future I intent to post pictures of my shop and I'm always looking for ways to improve my shop as well as my skills.
I am presently planning to built an entire kitchen for my son who lives on Staten Island. Cabinet construction should start next week. Estimated project duration around three months.
