I've been in the software business for about 29 years. I've been making things since I was a kid. My father built sport-fishing boats. I also worked for Newport News Shipbuilding in the submarine engineering program for 15 years. I've been making some furniture lately since my father gave me all of his shop tools since he's retired.

Glad to make your acquaintance David. I’m Looking forward to seeing more of you projects . The ones you posted look really well done. I also like your Paul Sellers workbench a lot.

I’m thinking that North Carolina must be the ideal place for a woodworker. I was in the furniture business in another life long ago in California and most of our better quality case goods were produced in NC.
