I started turning wood in high school in 1955.
I retired from the Burlington Northern railroad out of Spokane in 1986.
For the next eight years I sailed a 48 foot catch almost around the world.
Two years after starting I met my wife Eve
in the Philippines.
She sailed with me for six years.
We got married in 1995 at diamond Lake Washington and have lived there ever since.
I built hot rods up until 15 years ago when my arthritis in my shoulder got so bad I had to stop.
That's when I started turning wood again.
