Well I’ve worked pretty hard all my life as just a general worker. I just retired back in November of 2012 after working the last 37 1/2 years at Quad Graphics which bought out quebicore world who bought out old Rand Mc nally so I been thru a few changes with work in 37 1/2 at same building. I was a stand-up fork lift operator for all the time I worked, the last in a rack system warehouse with about 22 foot high racks the last 20 some years and my body couldn’t take the 12 hr shifts the new company put in after working all but the last year working 40 hrs a week. So they offtered a benifit on Ins. for some of the older people if they made the cut. So I desided to go early was going to wait untill may of 2013 but had to make up my mind by December. So i left, well I been trying to get back into my workworking from years passed before work took me away did make a few clocks and small hobbie projects nothing major I’m feel like a beginner but know a little bit about things want to build some funiture if I can which I’m going to give it my best shot Ive been redoing my garage again getting new equipiment to add to what I had, which was old. Trying to make my shop pretty much portable by building my bench’s for everything to move around. Thru all the family sickness and other things going on this summer its been trying at times for me to get garage ready. Which I’m still doing it hard by your self. Will try to post a few old picture’s of some stuff I made if I can find them but thats been back a few years lol. Well I’ve sais enough about my self it’s time to go back to looking for things needed. I seen some clock’s of someone had made that was nice didn’t get there name was kind of looking around and click something and it took me to this Lumberjocks site so here I am. I have been trying to build a project for a friend that I worked with most of the summer but as I said it’s been kinda busy with family plus setting up shop, hope to get back to blanket chest soon have it cut out just got try and get back to it.
