Location: The Dark Side of the Moon

General purpose gear head, CAD jockey, CNC tool junky & DIY glutton for punishment...

I was bit with the woodworking bug when my dad custom made built-in desks, bookshelves, cabs and mantle in our family home.

After a decade in the navy, I punched out and built a timber frame house in Maine. And after 15 years, three kids, a large addition and a few out buildings, I'm calling the place done.

Currently work as an industrial packaging engineer and I'm setting up a man cave in the basement to make shaker and A&C style furniture.

I was looking at your recent project where you built your daughter and her doll a balance beam; great job by the way. I couldn’t help notice what looks to be your shop in the background with the beams and brick. I was hoping you had some pics of your workshop but didn’t see that on your profile; I’m envious. By the way is Pink Floyd your neighbor; great tunes. Look forward to swapping ideas and working together in this virtual wood shop.

Thanks for the encouragement!

By the way… That verse has a special place… To “rightly divide” is the word orthotomeo in Greek… Used for stone masons and tent makers during that time… Paul was a tent maker and used the term with Timothy… And it literally means “cut it straight!”... Very fitting for woodworking and the word of God alike…

-- 2 Timothy 2:15 "Be diligent to present yourself approved to God, a worker who does not need to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth."
