I am a Vietnam veteran and a retired heavy equipment mechanic. I started wood working like a lot of the people in my social and economic strata, by refurbishing old houses that my family and I lived in. I have since the early 90's tried to do a bit more than just make old stuff new again, so I started doing serious wood butchering in my garage and I am still at it. I need a lot of help still and appreciate the info I get here.
