Sixty-six and retired. Wife, two kids and two grandkids (additional twins on the way - due in Feb, 2006). Wife is an accountant at a nearby hospital. Daughter is divorced and is an ER nurse at the local hospital and has a daughter. Son is a CSI with the Wilson PD and has a son with twins on the way.

Most of professional career was in electronics purchasing in a manufacturing environment and product management in a distribution environment. But retired as the Dir of Materials Management from the local hospital.

Grew up an Army Brat (25 schools from the first through the twelth grades all over the world). Between growing up and my Army days, I have lived or spent extended time in, China ('48 - pre ChiCom days), Japan, Okinawa, Laos (the secret war in '58-'59 - do a Google search), Thailand, Chile, Panama, Turkey (with travels throughout the middle east), Italy. Stateside: Born in FL, lived in NH, SC, CA, TX, NM, GA, NC, MD, DC and have ties in east TN.

I enjoy woodworking, not great, but passable. Enjoy grandkids and I Flog (that is golf spelled backwards but describes my game). I am also an active Mason (PM and PDDGM). I also belong to the Triangle Woodworkers Assoc and go to most meetings. Wife is still working for 3-4 more years.

I am a UofF fan (go Gators) where I went when I got out of the Army in '60.

Right now I have my shop posted on Woodworkersweb

http://www.woodworkersweb.com/modul...e=index&include=view_album.php&page=1

Feel free to look. And feel free to stop by most anytime just e-mail ahead of time to make sure I'm going to be in. I work two days a week for pocket money that I can spend without accounting to LOML.

Where and when were you in Japan. Me, Yokohama '54 - '55

I really like your shop and am very jealous that you have seperate building. Where's the recliner and television =D> I also looked at the pictures of some of your work and I'm impressed. I'd like to learn how to make legs you have on the jewelry armoire.


Well, you got me beat. I was also an Army brat but only did 13 schools in 12 years. \:D/ Now I feel I've missed something. :( I was in Occupied germany and japan as a dependent. When my father was actually in the states we were usually at FT. Gordon, he was CID. I was in the Navy for four years and mostly saw the sea :-({|=

So have we met at the TWA meetings? Let's introduce ouselves, sapwood is also a new member.

I was in Kyoto, '52-'54. The last 3-4 months of my Army time was at Gordon, early part of '60.

Is your avatar you're real picture so I can recognize you at the TWA meetings? I am 6'1", thin, balding, glasses. I try to sit about half way up the center aisle on the left side.

I finally had a couple of minutes to sit down and look through your album -- I really like your shop. I think I'm going to steal some of your ideas. I really like your router table! Great use of a piece that would otherwise have been discarded.

If that's just "passable", then that does it... I give up! Man, you do some seriously nice work!

Gator,

Great shop, wish mine were that larage :cry:

Don't worry about the recliner and TV Steve mentioned--you had one bottle of wine in the rack :)



Hope to see you at TWA meeting or perhaps visit you shop sometime.

Why not,
