It mixes many of my favorite things! Music, building things, blues/rock, homemade, creative, and I can also mix it with my other passion of design and planning on mixing low tech with high tech in terms of SOLIDWORKS 3D software...long story there!

Thanks for the kind words. I have not built anything in years. I have a few builds in progress that I just can't find the ambition to finish. How about yourself?
