Location: Aurora, Illinois

Retired Teamster truck driver - drove for the same company for 30 years.
Retired in 2004 and loving it! I've always been handy with wood and thought I'd give woodworking a try. Bought some power tools and the rest is history.
I'm actually pretty good at it and just about everything I make is custom -sizes and shapes, etc. Alot of jewelry boxes and bandsaw boxes, knives, frames, small furniture and all the stuff the neighbor ladies can throw at me.

My wife makes jewelry and I make all the wood components.

I would agree that you have some skill at this woodworking thing! Nice box. I like using Canarywood. The Purplehaeart goes well with it.

-- Robert, so much inspiration here, and so little time!

Have your say...
