A Mechanical Engineer by education. Also a car nut.

Most of my career has been in the Automation\Controls Industry. Specifically, Safety Integrated Systems. VERY high availability systems for the Energy Industry. Usually, redundant, triple modular redundant, or even quadruple processor redundant systems. So, Safety is a big part of my life and it is reflected in my comments and suggestions on this website.

My father was a wood worker and it was one of the few things we did together when I was a kid.

Still enjoy it as much now as I did then. Miss ya Dad and think of you every time I pick up a tool.

Thanks Candy for the kind words and warm welcome. I look forward to spending some time on this site. There are some truly gifted people here that seem willing to share what they know with others. Hope I can return the gesture.

Cheers!

This is Grade A Birch plywood. No voids. I specified Birch because it is a work surface and I wanted a material that was as stable as possible in our southern climate.
Just have to willing to pay more and establish a relationship with your lumber yard.

Nice shop, I’m sure you can find what you want when you want it. I can’t, having a new shop and developing a home for all the tools and paraphernalia takes time.
I echo your sentiments about dad. I also share a fond childhood with my dad and woodworking. I grew up loving the smell of wood being cut in the shop. I wish my dad could see my shop now.

Have your say...
