30+ years working in video delivery systems, today working with over the top video delivery. My grand fathers were both in the construction business and I have many fond memories of spending my summers wiring homes until it got hot then fishing until it was dusk and then more wiring (well playing gopher for Pop-paw). Or building decks, installing cabinetry or getting laughed at for my poor carpentry skills by my other pop-paw.

I've been wood working since I was big enough to hold a hammer but didn't get serious until I wanted an entertainment center to hide the 27" TV and it was just too expensive to buy.

Now I find it a nice relaxing time to use a completely different part of my brain. I have to admit sometimes I spend more time making a one-time use jig than I do on the project.

I've been fortunate that all 3 of my kids enjoy wood working, camping and just being outside. My son has already passed me in his skills with very few tools. The two girls are more crafty with their wooden projects and they are great help with colors and matching than I, so I go to them for what colors to use.

I hate painted wood. If God wanted it painted he wouldn't have put that beautiful grain in there.
