Location: Ft.Worth Texas

I have been working with wood since I was very young. My grandad was a woodworker from the 'old days' - he was a master woodcrafter - he tried to teach me but I knew it all back then, now I would give 1 billion bucks to have him in the workshop with me for the day!
Now I am a granddad - lil man is still too young to get in the shop, but now I am making toys.
Been turning pens and bottle stoppers, bowls and anything else I can get hooked up on the Lathe!
Lived most of my life in Texas but due to my wife's job, she makes the money, we recently moved to Minnesota, spent two years there. Now we are back home, in Texas - enough of the sub zero and tons of snow - give me the sun and heat!!
I love spending time with her, and she will get in the workshop and build things as well. She is pretty good!
Our son graduated from Texas A&M in 2010 - He has also showed signs of wanting to get more into woodworking..... it runs in the blood
