    Three Descriptive Terms, One of them "Woodworker"

    David Crouse' introduction thread comment about computers and woodworking being an odd combination gave me an idea. I notice some recurring pairings mentioned here in passing and thought it would be fun to share them in a thread. I know we have the Musician/Woodworker, Geek/Woodworker and Machinist/Woodworker combos going so let's add a third descriptive element and have some fun. For example; I could be described as:

    Geek (Network Engineer), Musician (ex-musician), Woodworker.

    How about you?

    Does general all-around doofus count?

    I'm equally as clumsy in the shop, in the studio, and when I sit down to work on my machine!

    Thanks,

    Bill

    Doing things with wood probably goes back before Adam's rib thing healed.
    How about??? gunbuilder/woodworker; artist/woodcarver; fisherman/boat builder/woodworker.
    I'm sure there is no end to it.
