Hi Everyone,

My name is Mark. I am a recent and fairly new hobbyist in wood carving. I have been a woodwork for a few years, or at least since my recent retirement, I have been able to get back into woodworking. I joined the US Air Force back in 1985 shortly after graduating school. I was a aircraft weapons technician for 16 years and crossed over to the medical field the last year's of my career for personal and health reasons. I have traveled allot being in the military, with my favorite overseas station being in Germany.

I have always been intrigued and enjoyed woodworking, and have as of recent gotten into wood carving. I recently bought a new home and have a new 40x60 workshop that I am in the process of getting set up and organized. It's the first time I have been able to have my own shop, a place to escape and pursue my love of woodworking. I find it very relaxing.

I am married to my lovely wife Barbara, and will be celebrating our 24th anniversary this year (2014).
I have two sons and two daughters which are all grown, and I am presently raising two of my six grandchildren, their ages are 6 and 7, and enjoy helping Papua with everything. I look forward to sharing my knowledge and love of woodworking with them, our future woodworkers of tomorrow.

I look forward to making friends and sharing future projects with you, and getting inspiration from yours.
