My name is Don Baker and I live in Flagstaff, AZ. A friend of mine, Carol "The Router Lady" Reed came by to visit last week and while we were schmoozing and playing with my lathe she mentioned that I might want to check out familywoodworking.org. She said it was a friendly place with like-minded woodworkers from all over the place. Sounded like I might like it, so here I am.
I am retired and recently had a nice 18x30 shop space constructed by adding on to and remodeling my semi-detached garage. My woodworking interests are fairly broad and unfocused. I use hand tools and machines and am master of neither. I am also a semi-reformed old tool collector. I recently have begun to get the lathe bug, but still have a lot of flat work to do yet. So that's my story. Glad to be here.
