Location: Chandler AZ.

I am 70 years young and have been woodworking since I was 12 years old. I was introduced to woodworking by a custom woodworker who owned a one man custom woodworking shop in Chicago Illinois. He was my mentor until his passing. I will never forget his smile and all the things He tought me. I have been retired for 15 years and was a full time firegihgter retiring as a Lieutenant assigned to a advanced life support engine company at time of retirement NW of Chicago Illinois.
I build furniture for myself, my family and take on ocassional commisions from people I know. The Good Lord permitting I will be woodworking for many more years to come. My Oldest grandson just returned from a 15 month assignment in Afghanistan, He is with the Arizona National Guard. God bless all our troops and all my brother firefighters for keeping our country free and safe.
