Location: Wilmington, North Carolina
Website:

I retired in 2007 after a 38 year telephone company career. My woodworking started in 1999 with a kayak kit from Pygmy Boats. This led to a boat building class at the local community college. That course was what really got me interested in woodwork. After getting an estimate for built in cabinets for the home I realized I could buy a lot of tools, do it myself,save a lot of money and still end up with a nice little woodworking shop.
I have done several cabinet projects for the home and other honey-do type projects as well as a cherry toy chest for my granddaughter.
As soon as I get ahead of the honey-do list I hope to start building a guitar which looks to be a real challenge.

Thanks to all for the welcomes. Ron, as to push sticks. I took a boat building class several years ago. The instructor let us use the bandsaw as the first stationary power tool. The first project on the bandsaw was to cut out push sticks for the table saw. I now make 8 or 9 at the time so there is always one ready when one gets used up.

Welcome to Lumberjocks. The projects are an inspiration, the information is priceless and the people are supportive. The only problem is, the site can get addictive.

God Bless
