As far as wood working, I am a second generation woodworker. Although I do not do it full time. That is until recently.
I learned from my father who, was a woodworker for about 50 years till his death several years ago. I am a little sad that I was not able to learn everything that he had to teach.
I live in a small town in NC and am trying to start my own business (not easy in these times). In any case, I have started with pen turning, carving, and some small projects. It has been some time since I last turned anything, so I was very pleased with my latest resurrection of this skill.
Beyond woodworking, I am an amateur radio operator, a member of an urban search and rescue team, an antique collector, and if you ask my family generally a little nuts.
Update: 10/29/2009 - I have not managed to get the business started, and had to return to writing for the time being. But at least I am bringing in money which will allow me more time in the shop. Things are getting better and it is my goal to eventually open my own business.
Warmest Regards from the man in the can. (See my blog for information about the can).

Well I finally got some pictures from inside the can. Being the cheapskate that I am, found a factory refurbished digital camera to take my pictures. Rather then getting the camera I previously told you about at Big Lots. Hey! I save $10 even with...
