Location: Newport News

I got the nickname from my voice (it carries), not from my generation.

I am a retired engineer with a basement shop that is very crowded with tools, the central one being a SawStop table saw. So far, I still have all of my fingers and hope to keep it that way.

Most of my woodworking is related to general upgrades to our mid-century, contemporary design home that many people (without prompting) think looks like a Frank Lloyd Wright design.

My besst advice to new woodworkers is "Take all necessary steps to reduce the sawdust and fumes too which most woodworkers are exposed." I hate to think about how much sawdust I have ingested over the years and wish I had gotten a sawdust collector and air filter sooner,

One of my maxims is that if you can park your car in the garage, you don't have enough tools.
