Tom Baily's Shop Tour

I was born in Sioux City, Iowa in 1947 and grew up in the Detroit area. After college (go Blue), I moved to the San Francisco Bay Area. I spent most of my career as an environmental consultant writing EIRs, EISs, and various permits for large industrial and infrastructure projects throughout the western United States, retiring in 2014.

I've been interested in woodworking as long as I can remember but work and family took up most of my time until I retired. I was lucky enough to come across the club and the fine adult education courses on woodworking just before I pulled the plug on work. Until that time, I had no idea of how to use hand tools like a plane, spokeshave, or cabinet scraper. The great classes taught by members of the club gave me many new skills, as well as great assistance in putting together complex woodworking projects.
