Location: Fort Wayne, Indiana

Born&raised in a small coal mining community called (Vesta#7 Pennsylvania) graduated from Beth-Center High School class of 1959. Moved to Indiana and worked in construction. (Bricklayer) Two years with US Army 1963-65 including Viet-Nam. Returned to Indiana and worked as a union bricklayer until retiring in 2006 (47 years service) Laid a lot of brick, block, &stone, hence the nickname "Rockbuster" Thru all of these years, I was always an avid woodworker as well. Like most woodworkers,I started with the usual hand tools,and progressed to a few power tools, now I have at least 2or3 of everything,and still not enough,all crowed into my small 20'X24' garage, along with an large assortment of good lumber.My woodworking interests include cabinet building(mainly raised panel) fancy multi colored woods cutting boards fancy rolling pins,,stamp holders, and a lot of segmented lathe turnings.. Got hooked on the segmented turnings a few years ago, after reading the works of Ray Allen and Malcolm Tibbetts. I am looking forward to using this LumberJocks site,as I have already learned more after only visiting twice,than I have on other sites after 3 years. Thanks for letting me join,hope that I can be an assett, and not a liability. Thank You "Rockbuster"

Hi guy’s&gals Thanks for the warm welcome, and nice comments. It will take me awhile before I start posting to the site, Right now, my biggest &most demanding project is to get my shop cleaned up from a lot of winters turnings, and get started again on finishing my wifes kitchen cabinets&island. It will take me awhile to navigate the site, as I am not a very good computer savy person. Thanks for understanding, and hope to have some posts in the future.
