I'm a transplanted farm boy now working as a Systems Analyst, minding the server farm and coming up with interesting methods to entertain myself. I have a lovely wife and three children under 5 so life at our house is a bit insane. It goes without saying that I don't get much shop time.

Welcome to Lumberjocks. The projects are an inspiration, the information is priceless and the people are supportive. The only problem is, the site can get addictive.
God Bless
