Hi Everyone -
I'm a retired baby boomer who has enjoyed woodworking since the mid 1960's. I was born and raised in Hawaii but have lived in Marietta, GA for over 30 years. I originally went to school to become an Industrial Arts teacher in wood and metal shop but life took me on other paths.
After college I became a USAF C-130 pilot. I then worked for IBM as a systems engineer/programmer. I ran my own graphic design/print brokering business untill 9/11 changed the economy. I used my free time to remodel my house and then took a job as a sales associate at Home Depot. Worked part-time at ROCKLER in Georgia. Before retiring I work part-time at a University supervising students in an architectural woodworking shop.
In the past I've built a mahogany chest of drawers and Queen Anne end table with hand cut dovetail drawers. I've also dabbled in metal sculpture for a couple of years. In 2005 I got into building skin-on-frame (SOF) boats out of recycled materials. After my 3rd boat I had to stop cause I ran out of space to store them.
If you look at my projects most of them are stuff to organize my shop. My favorite projects are my tool cabinet, workbench, rocking chair, shoe storage and drill press mobile base and cabinets.
I have about 500 sq. ft of shop space that is never organized enough.
Other than woodworking I love to cook ... mainly because I love to eat.
I've been married to a very supportive wife for 45 years and have 2 boys and 2 precious grand children (13 & 8).
Iʻm also a prostate cancer survivor. If any LJ faces such a diagnosis and need to talk to a survivor about options, I welcome all PMʻs.
I look forward to sharing my projects with you in the future.
