  • Hi I'm Craig

    I live in the land of the Hodag or Rhinelander, Wi. I'm a new 62 yrs. old. I served in the Navy as a lab tech assist and Field marine with the 3rd marine.
    I'm a retired 30 yr veteran of law enforcement. I'm a beekeeper, fishing Kayaker and grouse hunter. I have a fantastic bird dog that I escort through the woods and admire her enthusiasm. My handicapped son David is my fishing competitor. David got his own kayak this year. I do not like being able to walk on water and I let snowmen go free. I have been making in line spinners, scrollsaw wearables and listen to bluegrass and dreaming of sunshine and open water. Oh I forgot to mention that I collect cookbooks. I very seldom fix the same thing twice for dinner. I'm a Swede that loves Asian food. I bike or walk or take the car if the first two choices are not available. Im also a contributor to Custodial Workers resource for safety and sharing performance information to tie workers together.

          I didn't mention that my young pup rides in the back compartment of my kayak when Im fishing. She keeps moving from one side to the other to watch a loon or watch someone on shore so I have to adjust my balance. I even catch her biting at my fishing line when it hits her.
          But the greatest thank you I get from her is when she stands on the hull to lay her head on my shoulder or to give me a kiss.

            Hi Craig, welcome.

            I like bluegrass also, but if I can't take it out of a microwave I starve.

                What Carole said. The lips are 1 1/2”, holds the board to the counter and keeps the flour from going off the back. After gluing them to the board, he drilled stainless screws through the lip into the board and made plugs to fill the holes. The board is 3/4” thick. Since he only has 4 large Bessy...

                I remember Russel well. I think he went back to the days of Free4all.

                FYI: I just completed an index of the Charity Ornament book from SSV and Birchbank designed quite a few ornaments.

                Denny, you are correct, his name is Russell. While he may not have been here in years, he pops in at the Village forum from time to time. I just checked and he hasn’t been there since July. I would suggest that you send him a PM perhaps through the Village and see if you get a response.

                I think his name is Russel. I checked and he was last on the forum in 2014. I had a request for one of his patterns. Fortunately I still had a copy. Anyone heard from him?
