  • Woodworker Information
    A few details about myself.
    Biography
    I am a retired carpenter that set up a wood shop to while away the time doing what I enjoy doing the most, making things out of wood. I don't do turning, scrollsawing, veneering,steam bending or any kind of wood bending,including bending over very well, to pick up all the stuff I drop on the floor.

    I like routing and have several routers and I am a router bit junky. I am scared to death of routers, that is why I am very careful using them,I love what they can do.

    I am also on the steering committee for our local woodworking group, the North West Woodworkers Association.

    Woodworking and salmon fishing in Puget Sound.
