Using tools and fixing things around the house has been a regular part of my life for many years. But it was only about 2 years ago I became interested in serious woodworking – and only in the last year that I began trying some of the more challenging things I've seen or read about. And boy do I have a lot more to learn! I’m humbled by the vast talents of all of the other "jocks" in this community and hope that one day I’ll have honed my skills to the point where other jocks might be occasionally impressed.
I’m married (for 30+ years) to the most wonderful person in my life – and she’s continually encouraging me and is very supportive of this crazy and intriguing hobby of mine. We have 2 grown children – both live in other parts of the country. Just got a new table saw for Christmas (Porter-Cable contractor saw) and I’m looking forward to using it for a major project.
Other than woodworking, I also enjoy golf and bluegrass music. I haven’t retired (yet) because, frankly, I enjoy what I do. (Being in sales, I get the opportunity to play golf with clients and get paid for it!)
I’m looking forward to learning more from all my new friends on Lumberjocks and sharing whatever humble skills I’ve managed to acquire.
