Spent most my life with metal working and cars as hobbies. A severely broken leg and a lot of down time got me into a Jet Mini-lathe. Countless pens turned and an exotic wood habit later, and the wood bug bit.

My Grandfather made beautiful Grandfather clocks before he passed. My Dad is working on something. I can't think of a better way to pay tribute to my Grandfather, than to carry on the tradition, so the shop begins...

I am thinking blanket chests to hand down from me.
