Location: Pleasant Garden, NC
Website:

I am a United Methodist Minister with a passion for viewing, handling, and shaping fine wood. I have been married to my high school sweetheart for 43 years and we have two wonderful grown kids and five grandchildren.

I have a wide variety of interests, including music (especially guitar), reading, photography, travel, and fishing to name just a few. Most of my woodworking skills have been self-taught or learned "on the job" with church disaster recovery teams and overseas mission building teams. Some of the work I have done includes construction framing, building concrete forms, trim carpentry, building utilitarian furniture like toy boxes and shelving, reworking cabinetry in my son's condo, building light furniture, and making decorative boxes. I do my woodworking in a single bay garage, and all of my power tools are either benchtop models or mounted on rolling bases. They include a construction site table saw, small band saw, router table, drill press, mortiser, sanding station, scroll saw, benchtop jointer, and 13" surface planer. I dream of a 2000 square foot shop. I am in awe of the amazing projects I have viewed on this site.
