Smile New Member, Old Woodworker

Thanks for the membership invitation. I not live in Orlando, FL. Moved here in 2000 from Hanover, MA via Colchester, Ct via Aliquippa, PA via Driver, VA. I retired from Siemens Energy and Stone & Webster after a career in Quality Assurance. My main hobby is Antique Engines (one and two lungers) but I have been playing in the sawdust for many years having been raised on a farm in Virginia. My woodworking skills are what I would call limited but I have added an addition on my former home and built furniture using dovetail joints. I own two routers and a router table. Just starting to get back into a little woodworking after many years.

Welcome from a newbie, glad to see your back at making dust. Retirement keeps most people I know busier then when they where working.
