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.

Over the weekend I went to an auction that had 600 bf of cherry, 400 bf of walnut and 400 bf of oak for sale. I wasn’t sure how I was going to get it all back into the shop or where I would even put it if I won the wood but I thought it wou...
