Location: Suffolk VA

I'm a retired construction engineer, worked as a construction manager for a major tire maker, an instrument engineer by training, but the last 10 years of my career I did quite a lot of mechanical projects such as piping systems and HVAC.

My Life with wood 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. Built a new shop shortly after moving and after 9 years of retirement, have settled into doing harder and harder woodworking projects just to see if I can do them. The pictures of my shop were made when it was new. Today the saw dust is everywhere and I don't think it can be cleaned up without removing everything and starting over.

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.

Ed, that’s one good looking board, I’m sorry I didn’t see this sooner, I don’t check my home page very often.
