Kingwood box

Besides being blond, blue-eyed and exceedingly average looking I am between 6’1” and 6’3” depending on which convenience store measuring chart you use. I have always been short for my weight and was supposed to have been 6’8” or 6’9” tall. I played lots of sports when I was young and went to college on an athletic scholarship in track. No, I didn’t run, I lumbered around the shot put and discus circles….which explains why my right arm is 5 inches longer than my left. I am married to a wonderful woman, Gail, who has been the love of my life for more than 40 years. She has achieved recognition as a Master Craftsman in needlepoint and teaches mathematics at the university level. I am a retired food scientist/engineer. I worked in industry for the first half of my professional career, then worked as a consultant for a while and then worked in the government/food regulatory sector developing food safety, training and inspection programs and emergency response programs. I am retired now working at being a househusband, wood turner, gardener, chef, writer (I really enjoy writing about woodturning and have been published in several magazines) and raconteur. I am a lifelong woodworker who discovered wood turning late in life. Wood turning has become an addiction I enjoy and WoW helps me get my daily fix.
