I have recently retired from public service. I was an electrician in commercial construction for several years before goining into public service. I enjoyed wood working since the 7th grade (1965) and have built barns, sheds, cattle pens and jewlery boxes. I am just acquiring the equipment for my wood shop (converted 24x24 garage).
So far I my projects completed are a quilt ladder (wood Magazine plan) in red oak and the cabinets to surround the shop.
I have read the forum and blogs on LJ for a while. Good to hear folks are so helpful.
I look forward to the assistance the forum provides and assisting where I can.

Be true to yourself and helpful to others.
