A bit about me
I've been interested in working with wood ever since high school when I built a 6' round kitchen table. That table is still being used over 50 years later (although not as a kitchen table). During the intervening years, my jobs were in the data processing industry. I did everything from maintaining mainframe computers, programming, building PCs, and managing the data center for a mid sized bank. While my jobs were always in data processing, I spent a lot of my off hours working with wood, but most of that was spend doing construction type projects. I built decks, patio covers, remodeled homes, and even flipped a couple of houses. Although, I did build the occasional piece of simple furniture; bookcases, coffee tables, a sewing machine cabinet, and a sewing cabinet.
A couple of years ago one of my daughters asked me to look at a couple of band saws she had found on Craig's list. She was living in Alabama and the saws were in north Georgia, where I was. At one of the places the guy was using a scroll saw when I arrived. After looking at the band saw, I was admiring his work and he mentioned that he had a scroll saw that he was about to put on Craig's list. I ended up buying both saws and a new hobby was born.
