I am a PhD engineer and research scientist who loves every aspect of wood. I grew up woodworking with my dad in his basement shop and have been woodworking for nearly 20 years. Now that I have my own place, I've started to set up my own shop and finally built my dream tool: a CNC Router Parts 48x96 CNC Router. I have dreamed about this tool since I was in high school and recently got it all working. My dream is to someday set up a shop and make a living (or at least some supplementary income) working out of the shop.
