I'm sort of a jack-of-all-trades. After 25 yrs in a machine shop and 20+ yrs as a homeowner, I've learned a little about a lot of things and a lot about a few things.

To date, my woodworking falls into the former category, but I am working towards changing that.

Space and time restrictions require that most of my projects be relatively small. For now... ;-)
