Location: Houston, Texas

Had rather do things myself than to have them done for me. I feel great satisfaction when I am successful doing/making things. I have been heavily interested in the alternative energy area since the early 1970's. My nickname comes from one my son assigned me. We sometimes collect scrap wood from trash around neighborhood and I salvage the good parts and make things out of them....thus scrapmaster.

For me every part of a piece of wood is an opportunity. The bigger pieces for bigger things, what's left might be used for key holders right down to butterfly, ladybug, etc. refrigerator magnets and childrens toys.

My favorite links other than here are:

I remember my grandfather sawing his thumb clean off with a table saw. He wrapped it in a wet warm cloth, went to the doctor, and had him sow it back on. Of course I’m sure he got antibiotics and pain killers, but it worked….he kept his thumb.

Hello all, glad I ran across this forum. I consider myself somewhat of a crude (but trying) woodworker and the knowledge and abilities of all of you is amazing. I might every now and then possibly share an idea, but from what I see I’ll learn much, much more from all of ya’ll. I may be getting up in age, but still always learning and looking for better ways.
