I am an old woodworker who lives In Grand Rapids, Mi. I like to try all kinds of projects and this web site really gives me inspiration and encouragement. The talent in woodworking displayed here is amazing.

My new avatar was taken at the entrance to the EAA Airventure in Oshkosh, Wi. in July 2015.
