I am looking at retirement sometime soon. If i can aford it. Age happens. Money does not always. Starting picking up Wood working hobby a couple a years back after a long absence after High School.

I grew up farming and farmed for a time. Did a lot of machinery repair, welding, mechanical and building some of my own little inventions for the farm. I use to like to go to farm auctions and see the inventions they came up with. You don't see that much any more as farms have gotten larger.

In 2007 I built a teardrop trailer. Built the frame and used rear axle from a VW Rabbit pickup of who knows what year. Built the body and learned a bit about making doors and haning them. Had to learn to build my own cabinets, face frames. Of course it would have been a sin to use any plans. And as I sin enough I did not want to add another to the list.

I now work ( use to work now, the )&^* laid the whole site off end of 2009) for a major computer company in a call center taking calls fixing servers. I love it when I am finishing a project. In the mornings I put on a coat of danish oil and then off to work with a good coat on me. It just feels right. Also a bit of dirt I often drive on on my way to work is a real joy.

Thanks guys for the welcome.

I am a very rank amature and am just picking up woodworking again. I did some back in HS ( graduated 1968 ) I find it very relaxing and after fixing computers all day I come home and find a bit of wood butchery to be just what the Doc. ordered. I really love to rub on a coat of danish oil in the moring just before heading to work. Make sure i wipe my hands on my shirt and pants a few times for good measure.

I love the smell of danish oil in the morning. It smells like freedom.

Right now i am finishing up some wall hangings to sell at our family reunion this weekend. These are a collaboration with my oldest sister. She painted florals on some tiles and i am setting them in wood. One hunk of wood came from the Lazy Boy plant in Tremonton Utah. Thought Max would enjoy that. I am in Southern Idaho.

Will do my profile in a few days.
