I have been playing with wood since I was 6 years old and sanding my Dad's latest project for punishment. It is a wonder I stuck with it but over the years since, I have made several hundred projects , furnishing my house and now my three daughter's houses. My Dad passed on tools to me, some of which his father's father had. I treasure them all. I still think there is nothing more exciting than the smell of freshcut wood or the feel of a piece of Black Walnut.

I am a still working full time in research in the aerospace industry but would love to be able to work wood full time. Maybe someday....
