15091 Brian Rice <berice@c...> 1997‑03‑14 Bio - Brian Rice
GGs,

After many delays, (well, OK, procrastination, actually) it's about time
I get my bio to the porch.

I'm 43, divorced, no kids and live in Ann Arbor, MI.  My interest in
wood butchering got started a while when I bought a small condo and
needed a workbench for the basement.  The resultant "bench" (a couple of
slabs of construction grade plywood topped off with masonite) is more
useful for storing stuff than for serious woodworking.  But for now,
it'll have to do.  I'm very much the newbie, but have been picking up
some hand tools where I can, mostly from the MofA.  I've taken a few
classes at local Woodcraft store, mostly stuff like sharpening, handtool
joinery, etc., but certainly need much more practice.

By day, I work as a technical support rep at StorageTek Corp; or, as I
like to tell people, I'm "one of those people you can never get a hold
of." 

My interest in handtool woodworking was motivated by a) the cost of
p*w*r tools, b) the noise they generate might tick off the neighbors in
the adjoining condo, and c) fear; I like my digits just where they are,
thank your.  My goals are to get to the point where I can build tables,
bookcases, etc., that fit my needs better than what I can buy.
