Aloha Ray,currently I live on Oahu (Wahiawa).I still keep up on my studies in furniture design & improvment of pieces of the 'masters' with our modern technices or tools . Thankfully Haleiwa Surfboard Company's owner, Lon Klein , has keep my job 'open' while I recover from my mis-adventure of last year. Its great to not have that 'worry'(will there even be work 'when' I recover enough to try to get back to woodworking). So as I take steps toward 'work fitness' , I have much time to reveiw the past sucessful designs I have produced while working for other companys or on my own from photos &than entering them into a CAD program to take them apart 'digitally' to redraw them,remeasure them,since it should rehone skills lost while in the coma last year.
Enough about me, so Ray , tell me of your woodworking. Is it your 'work' or pleasure or as some of us have found that nitch in between 'pleasurible work'. Have the Islands been home or as my case , become home? Aloha Mark
