Location: Watkinsville, GA

I've been working wood in some fashion since I was old enough to whittle with an every-day-carry pocket knife- which was like... 3rd grade?
I made a few things in jr. high school shop class, and a few things in high school, but then didn't do a whole lot after graduation.
I spent 14 years as a mechanic, then went to work in maintenance for a flooring factory... which got me out of that dismal flat rate system and into industrial woodworking.
When the flooring factory changed hands, I sought work in IT, but wound up in a cabinet shop using my technical skills to help transition them into the CNC world. I learned as much as I could about the design program, and am now employed as a remote design engineer for an upscale cabinet shop in another state.
So I spend days drawing up cabinet jobs, and my nights making things in my shop. Life is good.
