About JayDee
I am a retired Manufacturing Engineer that spent most of his working career engineering plant or assembly line layouts in the automotive Industry. The last five years though were spent as a Continuous Improvement Coordinator for a cabinet manufacture. Apparently sawdust is addictive because after my retirement in early 2009 I could not get wood out of my system. As result I built a small wood working "hobby" shop to occupy my retirement, that is when I am not visiting my Son and Daughter in law and five grandchildren. Over the span of my working life I have done a little DIY home improvement including furniture refinishing and kitchen cabinet upgrading but have no formal training in the "art" of wood working only a joy in doing it.

I am happily married to my childhood sweetheart, we have just recently celebrated 49 years together. With a wonderful Son and Daughter-in-law and with 5 Grandchildren, a church full of friends and time to spare I lead a full and rewarding life especially when the wood working is included.
