I have a day job (jewelry store) and do woodworking in the eves, weekends. I have a deluxe free standing shop in my backyard that is 25 x 25 feet, with an 11 foot ceiling. It is heated, plumbed, and soundproofed so I can work far into the night without disturbing the neighbors, as long as I don't run the dust collector which is outside of the shop. I have converted one of my garages into a heated paint booth with exhaust fan and remote compressor so the filter doesn't clog with product when I shoot furniture. I make fine furniture of all kinds, both painted and stained. I do spindle turnings as well and incorporate these into most of my work.
Recently, I learned to weld using a MIG system and have produced my first painted metal/wood piece, a coffee table for my youngest daughter, complete with secret compartments behind the drawers.
I am 62 years old, married for 37 years, with 6 kids and 12 grand kids so far. I also love bicycling on and off road, camping, and canyoneering.
