Hi Everyone -
I'm a semi-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. Now semi-retired 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.
If you look at my recent projects most of them are stuff for the shop; workbench and tool storage cabinet.
I have about 500 sq. ft of shop space that needs a little more organization.
I've been married to a very supportive wife for 43 years and have 2 boys and 2 precious grand children (11 & 6).
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.
