Hi I'm John From Washington State North of Seattle and I run industrial equipment mostly forklifts but other stuff as well. Just getting into Woodworking liked it in High School so many years ago and thought I would give it a go again besides tired of my cheaply made IKEA Furniture
Healthcare IT application specialist. Essentially I try to make computers and healthcare providers play nice together. I love working with my hands but this pays the bills so on free weekends I make sawdust.
Completed: Puzzle Bookcase from C&B, Coffee Tbl, WorkBench
Next: TV Stand, wife's crafting Tbl, bedend trunk...whatever else that catches my eye in a mag or at the store.
This is really fun to read!
Sadly I don't see too many people my age (30 and under) who thinks this is fun anymore. I got my first taste of wood in Jr High and have wanted to do more ever since. Now that I've got a house and more importantly a garage nothing can stop me! MWUHAHAHA Garages aren't meant for cars anyway.

By day I am a non degreed Engineering Support Specialist who provides assistance to the design and maintenance engineers for high speed currency processing equipment. I started working on computers/radars in 1972 when they were loaded with paper tape and punch cards and have continued to educate myself ever since. Anyone remember Sperry Univac??
I fell in love with woodworking in high school and haven't stopped since. I feel extremely lucky that my wife loves the smell of fresh cut wood enough to give me a hug and kiss when I come in from the shop.
This is a great thread. By the way, I'm a professor and researcher at a State University in Baja (master degree in Economics), Mexico and a newbie in the carpenter profession (2 years now). This for me it's like a hobie and a stress relief activity and like somebody of you said before i love the smell of wood and my wife love the small projects that i'm starting to do! Great Community!
