The actual shop cat is Bosco, a tuxedo Norwegian Forest Cat with a definite and refined sense of style and taste. He supervises from on high (a shelf top) as I destroy expensive hardwoods.
I'm a retired IT manager. I started as a junior enlistedman in the Navy at 18 and ended at 56 as a technical team manager with graduate degrees and lots of other stuff that have no bearing on my current life. IT was a good ride for much of the last +35 years, now I'm now a semi-skilled furniture maker.
I have done rough carpentry, fine carpentry, and some limited fine woodworking. I have a fairly typical small, cluttered, garage based, home shop well equipped for smaller projects. It does have dust collection, mostly 1990s-2000s-ish Delta/Porter Cable/Benchdog tools, all on wheels, with a nice bunch of older hand tools including refurbished Stanley planes from the old Liberty Tool in Maine. I take classes when I see something good offered, and have no trouble sleeping in my pickup shell if I feel the urge to go somewhere.
