Novice woodworker with most of the usual toys. Doing some home remodeling but hope to get to smaller woodworking projects and furniture. Enjoy turning and have done some cabinets, veneering. Hope to do some threaded boxes, natural edge bowls with intriguing woods, etc.
My wife and I help with a woodworking vocational training venture near Phnom Penh, Cambodia associated with a Christian mission. For about 2.5 years now - very enjoyable experiences. Work takes me around the US and internationally. I hope to visit woodworkers wherever I travel.
