Horseheads, NY, US
I have been a woodworker for 30 years. I am a Journeyman Carpenter, Residential Designer/Builder, Certified Kitchen Designer(NKBA), was the Cabinetmaker for University of Oregon, and for the last few years a Woodturner, and most recently getting into woodcarving. I am retired/disabled, but spend 10-12 hours a day working in my shop. A few years ago I bought my first lathe - a 1953 Delta-Rockwell Homecraft 11" basket case for $50. Put it together, built a nice cabinet stand for it, bought some gouges, and I was off and running. I was totally enamoured with woodturning! Now I turn on a Powermatic 3520B Lathe and just love it. I'm fulfilling my retirement dream of being able to design and build furniture, cabinetry, a variety of woodturnings. Basically, I'm creating whatever I want to, and am having one hell-of-a-good time doing it. Oh yeah, and I've looked to Fine Woodworking for many many years for technical advice, enjoyment, and inspiration improving my knowledge and skills in my work.
