Hi all! I have finally reached the point in my life in which I can start trading in my paychecks for tools and supplies . For my day gig, I am a mechanical engineer for the lumber industry in northern CA. Unfortunately, it's redwood, and we don't cut veneer... I will have to hunt some down though. As a kid (Im still a kid) I worked with my dad on cabinet building, a little side gig we had so I am not too green in the carpentry business. In college I worked in the carbon fiber industry building drum sets (check out Rocket Shells). My ultimate goal is to blend wood and carbon fiber to see what I can make!
