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.
-- Backer boards, stop blocks, build oversized, and never buy a hand plane--
