Location: Suffolk VA

I am a retired construction engineer, I worked as a construction manager for a major tire maker. I am a instrument engineer but the last 10 years I did quite a lot of mechanical projects such as piping systems and HVAC.

I have been working with wood for most of my life. I started in Industrial arts class in the seventh grade, been hooked ever since.

After retirement we moved to Virginia to be close to my wife's family and love the coastal area. I built a new shop shortly after moving and I am still working on it. I think it will always be a work in progress.

I spend most of my time fixing things around my house, my other house, my mom's house. my sister in laws house, you get the idea. I'm handy so I never run out of honey dos.
