hello, and welcome to day 2:

So I'm an amateur wood worker, I'm also a pretty good amateur photographer. This complicates my quest to upload some of my previous projects as I have millions of (indexed) photos on terabyte external hard drives to search through. I've photographed everything including my wood projects. My biggest passion is family, oddly they don't always see it the same way I do. I Also dabble a lot in metals and the occasional stone work and on rare occasion these materials find a way into my wood working.

At a minimum I do at least one project a year. When I find a project that I think others would enjoy and it doesn't cause me grief, it is most likely to become duplicated in mass for the entire family as a holiday gift. Usually that type of project is musically motivated or a game of skill and dexterity. The family calls this project affectionately "Santa's Sweat Shop"

My shop has become somewhat of a small work area with what I like to call my "Jr Carpenter Starter Kit" and now that I have so much extra time on my hands I plan to do a little more than one yearly mass production project.

Please don't hold your breath however, My sudden bursts of enthusiasm much like my energy level are currently dictated by circumstances beyond my control.

-- I could retire nicely if I could sell my experience for what it cost me.
