  • Woodworker Information
    A few details about myself.
    Biography
    I have 2 sons, both with great musical skills compared to my total absence of skills. One is a college grad looking for a job and is engaged to his girlfriend of about 8 years. The younger works with a financial planning company. I am college prof trained in molecular biology and have worked on many different systems from bacteria, archaea, cellular slime molds, human immunogenetics, antibiotics. Climatologist in self-training with special concern about global warming. Suffered a spinal cord injury in early 1999 during what I am told and have seen pictures of an icy road traffic accident. I was told my car spun out in front of an oncoming garbage truck. Very lucky to still be alive, but now wheelchair bound with no sensation or voluntary muscle control below the rib cage.
    Location
    West Central Illinois "Forgotonia"; town of 20,000 80 miles from Peoria, Quad Cities, Springfield
    Interests
    woodworking centered around routers;
    politics; activist against discrimination against disabled;
    auto racing especially open wheel (Indy car, Formula 1), NASCAR fantasy racing,
    was avid nature photographer; had nearly 400 slides from tropical scuba diving (all slides lost or destroyed)
    Ph.D. molecualr biologist science nerd "if you can't see it I'm interested in it" with interest in life in extreme environments, microbiomes, genomes, climate change and stress driven evolution; evolution of development
    Favorite Router
    Makita 3612C;
    Bosch MRC23EVSK will be serious contender when I get Oak-Park size base plates drilled.
    Makita RT0701CX3 compact router is great when 1/2" shank bits not required.
    Woodworking Experience (Years)
    depends on how you count; scroll saw as child; hated jr high shop; resumed 20 yrs ago, found RW 2000
    First Name
    Tom
    Country
    United States
  • Signature
    "Teach your children what we have taught ours, that the earth is our mother. Whatever befalls the earth befalls the sons of the earth. The earth does not belong to man; man belongs to the earth. Man did not weave the web of life; he is merely a strand in it. We do not inherit the earth from our ancestors; we borrow it from our children."
    -attributed to Chief Seattle of the Native American Suquamish Tribe
    • Wood working, especially router work is too much fun to let "disabilities" get in the way.
    • see MEBCWD's signature line; be certain brain is properly powered up and engaged
