I don't recall ever doing an Intro to the forum. I'm retired, my wife is retired, and we have nine grandkids. My hobbies are fishing, hunting, reading, spoiling the grandkids, but not in that order. I have lived or traveled in a number of places and left every one on my own accord. I got into woodworking and woodturning when I built custom fishing rods. Started out turning grips and went downhill from there. I have a very small shop but get the job done. I gave up rod building as it would have turned into a full time job. That is not why I retired. Now, I'm into penturning.
