Glad to find another nice looking online spot to talk woodworking. At 55, I'm sort of half newbie, half old-timer, having plugged away at the hobby off and on for about 30 years...more off than on, really and not too seriously at that. But a couple of years ago, I got back into it with a vengeance, as an outgrowth of all the DIY improvements I've been making to our house in the last few years. I'm a hybrid woodworker with a very small shop (er...garage...half of it, anyway) and I've been slowly filling gaps in my woodworking skills and education.
As the thread title suggests, I live in Peters Creek, Alaska (in the Municipality of Anchorage) with my wife, a dog, two cats, two grumpy squirrels residing in the woodshed, and the occasional bear that wanders across the deck. My other interests include cooking/grilling/smoking, fly fishing and fly tying, shooting, photography, cigars and libations, and too much more. I look forward to getting acquainted.
