Location: South Paris, Maine

I live in South Paris, Maine. April to November I play golf. I play 18 holes before I go to the office and 9 after work. Everyday!!! I usually am at the course around 4:30 A.M. In the summer in Maine you can usually see then.
Winter in Maine is woodworking time. I go into my shop at 2:00 A.M. and put in around seven hours. Then go to the office. I do this everyday. Weekends I may work all day depending how I feel about the project.

I consider myself an intermediate woodworker, but hell to the kids and grand children (Who I build stuff for) they think I am an artist. LOL.

When I get into a project I can hardly think of anything else until it's done. I love woodworking!!!!

Judging by your profile you are an obsessive workaholic, maybe with insomnia, probably a great golfer and judging by your projects an accomplished woodworker to boot. I haven’t the faintest idea how you manage all of this, but my hat’s off to you. Oh, and a belated welcome to LJ. You should feel right at home here, as we are all at least a bit obsessive!
