Retired electronics technician with 35 years int he telecommunications industry. The last 12 years were spent computerizing and organizing the building and grounds maintenence department.
Frustrated termite for probably 40 years or more. Didn't really get serious about wood working until I retired at age 54 to try something different before 'really retiring'. Then I slowly got rid of all my electronic shop equipment and replaced it with wood working tools.
One day in 2001 I kiddingly told my wife what she could get me for Father's day that year as we passed a 1929 Model A Ford for sale in a front yard as we drove past. Within 2 weeks she had not only OK'd me getting it, but also it's little sister that was hidden inthe back yard. That settled my final step into wood working because I wound up making a body for the little sister's chassis out of oak. My wife told me after about a year of working out of the garage that I also needed a shop. Took me 5 years but I now have a very nice (small) wood shop that played a big part in completing "Ethel" and the trophies she's recieved at a bunch of car shows over the last 3 years.
