I am a software/electrical engineer at NOAA. I design, build, and write software for various weather balloon instruments. Woodworking is a hobby I picked up to work with my hands and have projects to occupy my free time.
I really enjoy building small wood projects on the weekends and after work. I also spend time hiking, bicycling, playing video games, and building computers.

Finished up the cutting board today. This old japanese plane has a wide mouth, so it works great for removing the glue squeeze-out stalactites. Used the low angle jack plane for leveling the pieces and flattening the board. This took quite ...
I need a bigger cutting board for my kitchen, so I decided to put my shop to work. The original sketchup model. I used logarithmic tapering widths for a bit of an illusion. Bought some soft maple and african mahogany off craigslist for cheap...
