I've been involved with woodworking since I was 6-7 years old, I'd help my dad with his work. He was a farmer not a cabinet maker. So he worked on the house or the barn. I took woodshop in High school and had a great teacher. I've been involved with mostly home improvement, and children's toys. I started selling craft items to pay for my "TOYS" I purchased 20,000 bd ft of hard rock maple for 2 cents a bd foot at a salvage yard. They must have had a million bd ft there. It came from a building that burned to the ground and all of this maple was in the basement. The story was it was used to make bowling pins or ladies high heel shoes. I made puzzles. Between Thanksgiving and Christmas my family didn't see me except at supper time. I got transferred, working on computers, lost the time for wood. I started back up about 7-8 years ago, made my wife's kitchen cabinets from Ambrosia Maple with a bowling alley counter top. It was shown in Wood Magazines e-mail as part of your most fantastic wood purchase. (That is another story by itself). Forced retired by being downsized for the second time, and decided to get out of the race. Enjoying life and trying to get into the shop at least every day.
-- I've been blessed with a father who liked to tinker in wood, and a wife who lets me tinker in wood. Southern Delaware soon moving to Virginia email@example.com †
