    My Shop
    I moved to Florida in 2017 and my current shop is in an unairconditioned one car garage. I do most of my work (hobby) in the spring and fall. Some warmer winter days and only very early during the summer, which lasts from June through September.
  • Woodworker Information
    A few details about myself.
    Biography
    I'm semi-retired in my late 60's with a degree in Aerospace Engineering and a Masters in Computer Science. Spent most of my career working for business in IT departments. Have been in a couple of partnerships then on my own for the last 12 years. I have always enjoyed working around the house and over the years have acquired a lot of tools buying them as i need them. Due to arthritis in my hands i have come to rely more on power tools than hand tools. Although i have never worked in the trade, my grandparents and most of my uncles were cabinet makers. I don't know if there is such a thing as a genetic predisposition to that sort of thing but I have an inherent love of wood in all it's various forms. Almost anything made out of wood, and beautifully executed almost makes me cry. So does my inability to create anything like that, but it doesn't stop me from trying.
    Location
    West coast of FL, USA
    Interests
    I have 8 grandkids scattered around the US and spend a lot of time visiting them. Because of them I finally realized why I had kids. Most of my woodworking consists of items for them. Name plaques, step stools, toy cars, etc. for the grandkids. I would like to try my hand at jewelry boxes. Besides woodworking and waiting around in airports, i enjoy reading, mostly adventure and other mindless stuff. I also walk on a treadmill most days to try to keep healthy and my weight under control.
    Favorite Router
    Bosch 1617EVS w/RA 1181 router table and RA1165 lift - 90+% of my routing is done on the router table. I don't do a lot of hand held routing.
    Although it's a multi-purpose tool I also have a Dremel with a few small router bits.
    Woodworking Experience (Years)
    On and off, mostly off, 15 years.
    First Name
    Barry
    Country
    United States
