I am a retired Air Force mustang, almost 8 years enlisted and a little over 12 years as an officer. During that time I did 6 over seas tours in Europe and Asia. If you were to guess that involved a lot of moving around you’d be right. This sort of put a damper on getting seriously into anything like woodworking, but I did end up with a collection of weird sized nuts and bolts in my parts bins.
After retirement I took a job that involved a fair amount of travel. If I ever get back to Wisconsin, I will be able to say I have been on every state in the US at least twice. When I wasn’t on the road, I averaged about 3 to 4 hours a day commuting to and from the office. Needless to say, this didn’t encourage me to get involved in any serious extra curricular activities, either.
I recently went through a health thingy that raised the possibility that I might be in a wheelchair and frequently unable to control the tremors of my arms and legs. It is too complicated to explain here, but I got lucky and found some health care folks that helped me recover from that. This, finally, got my attention. I decided that if I was ever going to jump into woodworking, I’d better do it now because you can’t always assume there will be time to do it later.
So, I am jumping in now. I find that although I knew I had a lot to learn, I am more ignorant than I ever thought. I’ve learned a bundle from reading posts on this forum and one or two others like it. This one is my favorite.
