Location: Gravenhurst, Ontario, Canada
Website:

Retired mechanical engineer. Previously self-emplyed for 24 years -- specialties automation, robotics and special purpose machine design. All the skills learned through woodworking seemed to apply. Things like paying attention to small details, thinking in 3-D, planning the right way to do something to make it easier, better, etc. -- big help.
I have been building stuff my entire life. When I was about 5 my grandmother would give me a nickel and I'd go to the hardware store and buy nails. Then I'd pound them all into a piece of wood until they were all gone. Born to be an engineer and woodworker.

Do you have the design plan for the bunk bed that you made? I have been looking for something like that everywhere.

Have your say...
