My Dad was a real DIY kind of guy. My brother Rick likened him to a ‘Breakdown Mechanic.’ At a young age, he had me help him work on the car, boat, and stuff around the house. He had a Sears contractor table saw and a few other woodworking tools. In high school, I would build things for the band.
This has become one of my lifelong passions like my music. I bought myself that same Sears table saw and started collecting power, mechanic, and woodworking tools. Over the years I have built shops in all of my homes. More recently I relocated the shop from my garage to its own building in the backyard.
