Location: Fredericksburg, VA

Computer nerd, woodworker, and woodworking instructor. I also enjoy Hang Gliding, Electronics, and have a small Metal Lathe, and now a CNC Micro Mill.

I've become a starving artist, focusing on woodworking. I share a studio at a local Gallery with 3 other artists.

I take commissions for various woodworking and SketchUp Design.

Thanks BC, and all the others. I never knew what I was getting into joining this site. Sooooo much inspiration. I’ve gotten & given more advice than posting projects. I need to post more of my own projects. I’ll do that soon. Thanks again to all.
