My desire to work with wood started when I was pretty young helping my dad in his shop. Over time my interest has expanded into a career. I teach Technology Education at a small K12 school here in Wisconsin. In addition to teaching woods and construction I teach several design and engineering related courses. It's really fun to help the students explore new areas. During the 2012 school year we added a Shopbot brand CNC router to our shop. Students have really picked up on this quickly! When I'm not teaching there is usually still some power tool in my hand. I spend my summers and free time operating a small construction business. Most of my work is done in the field so my shop usually looks like a couple of collapsible saw horses and some portable equipment. Someday I dream of having a shop filled with large antique equipment, but for now my garage fills the void when I have a project to complete

Welcome TechTeacher- almost made it to 34,000 jocks. There were only about 5000 when I started. In just about 4 years it has grown. Your catching on fast thanks for the buddy add. I think this is the first time I’ve welcomed anyone to LJ’s. I’m sure you’ll be adding a lot of input now. When you find the time. Ha, later, bob
