Electrical contractor in industry for 47 Yrs. Designed and built fully automatic production machines for various products, the last few being chainlink fence weaving.
They were fun and interesting, but woodworking is way more fun.
Five years of experience now working wood, and still feel like a beginner with all the various things to learn, cuts to make, tools to use, and types of wood.
So much to do, so little time.
