Although primarily a wood butcher, manytimes my shop floor shows more plastic/metal/etc shavings and dust than it does sawdust.

My work takes me into many different materials, many different methodologies, technologies, and the weirder it is the more funner it is.

Primarily a cabinetmaker, that oftentimes takes me into realms bizarre. Drywalll, circuit tracing, and to top it off, my hobbies are tool related! Got a hankering for jewellers, machinistss, And that probably means I aloso collect tools, whether practical or not, mostly because I never know when I'll actually have to use them.

I am not only a "user" but a tool junky.I love the higher gizmocity old tools much to my wife's chagrin.

but I also love the modern truly creative tools
