Location: Chesapeake, VA

Retired Navy.
Started woodworking in 1967.
750 Square foot garage/shop (no cars allowed.)
Enjoying working around the house.

I believe if I'm gonna spend my time and money to build something it should be built long enough for my grandkids to inherit it. I'm still using the stuff I built in '67!

I think jigs are the way to go and I love making them.

Some shop photos available at:

Lovely to connect Pete – as an Aussie I take my hat off to you and the service you gave to your country. I also LOVE your build it to last mind set – and thankyou for your encouragement – I am trying to recreate these pieces using everything and doing it eco friendly as well – as I live on a carbon foot print property in country Aus :)
