Website:

I am a retired engineer from the aerospace industry. I have been a woodworker off and on since working in my father's home workshop as a youngster. In recent times, I have spent more time house remodeling than woodworking, but that is about to change. I am just a hobbyist woodworker and a confessed tool junkie! I am a power tool guy -- and not into doing things by hand unless necessary.

My wife and I have recently moved into a senior gated community here in Auburn, WA. Fortunately, the home we purchased had a small attached lean to room which I have converted into a woodshop.

When completed, I will have a nice variety of power tools to make my hobby more enjoyable, including a hybrid tablesaw, 14" bandsaw, bench drillpress, 6" jointer, Performax 16-32 drum sander, DeWalt 735 planer, Ridgid Oscillating Sander, air compressor, router table, downdraft table, and 3HP dust collector.

I hope to be able to share some of my current and future projects with the wonderful folks here on Lumberjocks. I visit this site daily and have enjoyed the many wonderful projects displayed and the great attitudes of the forum members.

Welcome Paul. You have found the right place for woodworking. A great group of people willing to help. Looking forward to see your projects and comments. Work safe in the shop and don’t forget to use pushsticks.

Hello
Your projects are very impressive, How would I go about learning to work with metals the way that you do?
Enjoy LJ

Hi Ory,
Thanks for your kind comment.
Your question brings a big smile to my face! I am a dyed in the wool WOODWORKER—NOT A METAL WORKER!
What looks like metal on my current projects is just birch plywood painted with a Hammered Metal Rustoleum paint! In fact, I don’t really like working with metal at all, and do as little of it as I can. But I sure do enjoy working with wood.
