Currently (2009) I am 64, "Old Fart", and have been woodworking since high school. There have been some years when raising a family of 4 kids took a lot of time and I didn't get to do much woodworking. Money was also tight when the kids were growing up so my tools were basis at the start. I started a part time business of gunsmithing for many years and that involved a lot of metal working as well. I still did not have an excess of tools; drill press, 12" disc sander, boring jig for scope mounting, bluing tanks, and lots of hand tools.

Well the kids are grown up now and have produced 2 grandsons and 2 great-grand babies. They are such a joy. I now have a very complete woodworking shop in the basement with an abundance of power and hand tools.

We rode a Gold Wing motorcycle for many years and my wife annd I started Chapter Ohio B-3 of GWRRA. We were promoted to Senior Chapter Directors before we stepped down. I also had a repair and customization part-time business during those years of working on Gold Wings only. I was The Wingdoctor.

I still am employed full time for the American Red Cross and get to do my woodworking in the evenings and weekends, when I am not enjoying the great grandkids. I do flat work of all types and turn bowls and pens on a Powermatic 3520B. I hope to make a couple of bucks from the woodworking if I can ever retire. I do sell some of my output currently.

My best customer is my wife of 43 years. Love you dear.

Welcome to Lumberjocks. The projects are an inspiration, the information is priceless and the people are supportive. The only problem is, the site can get addictive.

God Bless
