About me? I suspect no one really cares in this venue but here goes…

Woodworking has been an interest and passion of mine for as long as I can remember. I spent my childhood in my dad’s garage teaching myself how to use the limited woodworking hand tools he owned; I do not know how I did not remove some fingers back then. Fast forward to my 30’s when I was finally able to start “the process” of outfitting the shop. I have since been through three different table saws two lathes and two lunchbox planers. I also have a dedicated 20 x 20 shop with central dust collection and aside from the desired upgrades every tool I could ever need – save a few more lathe gouges. Professionally I am an Electrical Engineer specializing in automotive embedded systems but my thought always drift to my shop – or my motorcycle – wait no, my family including my wife and children – ya, ya, wife and children… A friend of mine reintroduced me to the lathe about 6 years ago – word of advice – don’t get a lathe, it will consume you. Well, that’s all I care to write for now…
