I am retired U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service employee. I live in southern Illinois. I still have a woodwork shop, I make molding, cabinets and furniture. I also have a hobby of building and working on insturments. I have played music off and on since I was 5. I have built insturments since I was 16. Since I retired I have the tools and the materials to build anything I want. I thought when I retired I would have lots of time. I still am pretty busy. Seems like there is never enough time.
I work on our old house and work in the shop, plus I have a job van to go out and remodel houses.
I go to church and play music the mandolin and fiddle there.
I don't know how I will do with this blog and really don't know much about it. I like making friends and haveing conversations. I will use the forum. I am on several forums.
George Beckwith has 8 friends.

I am now retired, but I still work all the time. I have a large shop, lots of tools and lots of wood. I build and repair stringed instruments. I make cabinets, moldings and furniture in my shop. I am 57 years old and still learning. I ain't afraid to ask questions. I am a real live Wood-a-holic. I love wood and working with wood.
