    My Shop
    Rapidly outgrowing my 20' X 24' woodworking shop. But at least it's detached from the house I can make all the noise I want, and the sawdust (mostly) falls off before I get inside the house. I'm currently heating with a 3000 Watt Milkhouse Heater and a 6000 Watt Wall Mount Heater. Cooling with a 25,000 BTU window unit mounted high in the wall. Recently renovated, fully insulated, with over 40 receptacles.
  • Woodworker Information
    A few details about myself.
    Biography
    I retired in June 2015, having spent most of my 35 year career working on the Mississippi River, with two years in Japan and one year in Afghanistan. Empty Nester, finally have time to do woodworking.
    Location
    Jackson, Mississippi area
    Interests
    My only two major vices are woodworking and photography. I don't golf, hunt, fish or follow politics or sports teams. Most of the items I build are to fill some need around the house, but I occasionally build a piece for a friend or relative.
    Favorite Router
    I'm partial to Porter Cable routers, but also have a Bosch, a Milwaukee, and a Triton that I'm fond of. Those are all good routers with their individual strong points.
    Woodworking Experience (Years)
    I fell in love in Jr High Shop Class in 1973, and have been dabbling ever since.
    First Name
    Andy
    Country
    United States

    ďWe should be careful to get out of an experience only the wisdom that is in it and stop there lest we be like the cat that sits down on a hot stove lid. She will never sit down on a hot stove lid again and that is well but also she will never sit down on a cold one anymore.Ē - Mark Twain
