I am a amateur wood worker. My job is investigating workplace accidents for the government. Not a very pleasant job, but very interesting. I often say 'my job is always interesting, unfortunately'.
Wood working is a passion I have indulged for quite a while, but lately I have started taking lessons. The lessons serve two functions, stress relief and fast tracking my skills. Sometimes I think the stress relief is the more important of the two.
My son is my joy, and my life.

I have just returned from four weeks in the US and had a great time. While I was there I bought some tools and went to a few places. One of those was the Lee Nielsen factory in Maine. Maine is spectacular and worth a trip there for the scenery ...
