    New to this Forum

    Time to introduce myself. I am a 62 year old guy who recently retired from a major aero-space company in the Seattle/Everett area. I moved away from the mad house of Seattle to Longview Washington. Six year Navy Veteran of the Viet Nam “Conflict”. Recently single, and a new comer to the woodworking world. I have a small shop with mostly inexpensive tools. I started making bird houses and planters for the LOML. I have slowly improved my skills, and have actually made some decent projects for family and friends. I am trying to expand my knowledge of all things wood working, and have, in the past few months, discovered the never ending vortex of wood turning. I see a lot of names here from other forums that I frequent, and this one seems to be on par with the WWA, which I visit daily. I probably won’t post a whole lot, as I am still much into the learning phase. So anyway, that be me.

    Hey Bob, welcome to the Family!

    Thanks for your service to your fine country!

    "Aero-space company" eh?

    I've seen a lot of impressive work from employees, or former employees of such aero-space companies, I'm sure you will be no different, so, if you can, show us some of your stuff, please!


    We love pics and learn a great deal from them, shop set up, tool stations, projects, heck, even blown up projects, always something to learn, or an neat idea or two to borrow

    Again, welcome to the family!

    Thanx for the welcome, I will post a couple of pics later, as soon as I can find them on the computer. I know they are here somewhere.
