    Exclamation New and wanted to say hi

    Just wanted to drop you all a note, introduce myself and say hi.

    I was in the Navy for 9 years decided i had enough fun and got out. i now work as a merchant marine on the Great Lakes. I know, get off of one ship and get on another. we haul mainly iron ore and coal.

    I live in northern Michigan with my wife and four kids. 7, 5, 3, 1.
    yes they keep the wife pretty busy when i'm not there, which is about 8-9 months of the year.

    i did a lot of woodworking in my younger days, but have really just rediscovered my interest in it. my main interest is the lathe. i have always enjoyed spinning wood.

    so this is me in a nut shell. and please keep the lights on and buy some steel, keep me working!!!
