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.
