Well, I grew up in the great state of Michigan, after a semester at college i realized that book learning stuff was not for me, so off i went to San Diego CA and not so much for the sun and waves, but for the boot camp. I spent 5 years in the Marine Corps doing avionics and electrical work on helicopters. After i got out, the wife and I moved to Texas to continue working on helicopter, this time as a Department of the Army Civilian. I'm now in the Texas Air National Guard where i am a armorment systems technician, which is a fancy way of saying i get to load really big bombs on F-16's ( insert Tim the tool man grunt here) and have two great little men whom i'm trying not to raise as modern day knights. I began woodworking when i moved to texas just piddling here and there. It wasn't until about May of 2011 when it started becoming more than just a hobby and became more of a passion. Hopeful this passion continues to grow and be cultivated into actual skills. With the tools on this site i see no reason that would not come to fruition.
