Spent half of my life as an independent businessman, the other half as a software developer. Been woodworking steadily for the past 6 years plus on and off since 7th grade shop class. My latest business was custom picture framing. I am a Certified Picture Framer.
Now supplementing our retirement with wood crafting.
