Location: Gold Country in the Sierra Foothills
Website:

Pushin' 60, ok ok just passed 61. I prefer old tools and living in Western Mass is ideal for this affliction. Home to Goodell-Pratt, Millers Falls, Langdon, Greenfield Tool and so on. I take lessons at the Hill Institute in Florence and am enrolled in their furniture program. With the exception of my planer and band saw, even my power tools are vintage.
Current project is a pair of night stands of my own design.
Added an ATC last year and this year will be building a bench

This is a long overdue update. We have moved to Northern California, Gold Country to be exact. My age, well is has moved as well. I'll be 69 this coming January My shop is now aboveground and I have a window and a big garage door!

I also renovate vintage narrow gauge railroad equipment which currently is a passenger car from the 1890's made by the St. Charles company.

Your paragraph above needs an update or two. ;-)
