When and how did you get into using tools/doing projects?
I was about 5 or 6 years old. It was during visits to my Grandfather, who had a woodworking shop setup.
What do you do when you're not tinkering in the garage and working on other projects?
If I'm not traveling, I’m usually hunting and fishing.
What's the project you're most proud of?
Completing an 8' x 12' walk-in shed.
Any stories of DIY disaster?
No disasters of any magnitude that were not easily recoverable from.
Why do you use Craftsman tools?
Craftsman tools were what I grew up with. They have always represented a great value, quality and the best warranty out there.
How did you get your DIY skills?
I received most of my carpentry skills from my Grandfather. Mechanical skills came from my time in the Army as an aircraft electrician.
Anything you have to say to other craftsmen out there?
Quality tools, or the lack thereof, can make or break whatever you are working on. With Craftsman tools, there is no worry that you will be lacking in quality tools.
