Location: Bainbridge Is., Washington
I live on Bainbridge Island in the state of Washington. I am married and have two wonderful children ages 16 and 20. Bainbridge is a thirty minute ferry boat ride from Seattle where I commute to work as an employment and commerical litigation attorney.
Growing up my father always had a work bench though the output from it was minimal (not to say non-existent!) Despite its primarily ornamental function, my Dad's workbench must have exerted some influence on his offspring as my brother and I have been compulsive project doers for years. 10 years ago, after watching too many episodes of This Old House, and despite the fact that I had absolutely no experience doing anything of the kind and was a full-time lawyer, I embarked on a remodeling project that included adding 800 square feet and entirely re-doing the main floor of our house. Three years later it was pretty much done and came out fairly well if I do say so myself.
I have not done a lot of fine wood working but in an effort to stave off urges to start another remodel am starting to try my hand at it instead. I moved into a new house last year and I am in the process of setting up my shop in the garage.
Woodworking gives me a chance to be creative (I have previously done some pottery and painting) and is a nice way to relax.
I have never been part of any on-line community and am happy to be able to "meet" people from all over the country with similar interests.
