Location: Frankfort, Kentucky

I am retired. During my working career I worked as an environmental analytical chemist for 30 years. I have two sons and five grandchildren (ages: 1 to 10) and have been married to my wife, Susan, for 37 years (I think that is right). I am blessed to have all my family in the immediate area and, with my retirement from state government began my new and, far more enjoyable, role as a grandfather. To tell the truth I find these guys to be a lot more fun than I remember their parents being. :)

With regards to woodworking my initial experience was in the general carpentry field such as installing doors, trim and hardwood flooring. My father, a third generation carpenter, tried to interest me in carpentry and woodworking when I was younger but, of course, I couldn't see any reason for learning those skills at that time. And now I don't have the opportunity to avail myself of his experience- much to my regret. I have taken several woodworking classes but remain largely self-taught.

I am looking forward to working with the people involved in this forum through which I hope I can make a modest contribution to return some of the joy that woodworking has brought into my life.

I guess it would be silly for me to ask who you’re rooting for in today’s game? I’ll be moving to Shelbyville in a few weeks, and we’ll practically be neighbors. Welcome to Lumberjocks!

Go Cats. Glad to see Big Blue as an avatar. I graduated a South Carolina “illegal fighting chicken”, but grew up and went to high school in Lexington, KY. I now live in Lexington, SC. Don’t get as many UK games here but then again it’s been a tough season this year, huh? Glad to see you found LJ’s.
