Get to Know
I am a young Old Guy who retired at 62 and have not looked backward even 1 day, and find that there are still not enough hours in the day to get the things done that I want to.My week days start at 4:30AM. I am a member of the Rome, NY YMCA and play racquetball 3 days a week and do the treadmill/bike and jacuzzi 2 days. I take off Saturday and Sunday but usually get up early on those days too. The rest of the day is spent in my "shop", blowing snow, or mowing the grass depending on the season. I really take great pleasure creating something useful from a piece of wood that will last for years. The most rewarding thing about my woodworking is to see a "happy person" with something I created. Nothing leaves my shop until it is in perfect condition. I have "unique" Cutting Boards/Cheese Boardsthat come in the shaped of an Apple, piece of Bread, Moose, Wine Bottle, Sailboat, Owl to name a few, There is also a number of "Mini" Cutting boards for you to look at. A selection of "Coasters" are also out there in addition to many other items. Please contact me with any questions or requests.
