Kudos to you! I really enjoyed woodshop in school. I built a cedar stip canoe with the industrial arts teacher at my junior high school when I was in 8th grade. Still have the canoe and love it! Now I design mechanical and plumbing systems for commercial buildings.
Retired carpenter, retired civil engineer, now finishing season of playing golf and fishing. Looking for new trade for winter.
Two guys from my company(Papa) in 1969 went for the Rickover interview. One was a dirtbag and the other was two blocked. We were floored when the dirtbag was selected and the squared away guy was not. Didn't seem to be any rhyme or reason for his selections. But nobody could debate the quality of the picks. The nuclear navy is truly elite.
My first job was working at Newport News Shipbuilding on SSN688 class Submarines. Didn't know much at the time, but it was a cool job!!
Cool I'm working for Sonoco now. Sr manufacturing engineer for the plastics division.
Steelworker for 18 years until i started building performance engines full time. Now under contract with one of the big three doing development work on gas and diesel engines. I have two engine dyno's running 8 to 10 hours a day 6 or 7 days a week. Proudly keeping the neighbors mad for many years now! LOL!!
In that case, I have a BETTER porn star name than you Jim Cherry!
Yea, I think it was just a formality by the time you got through all the other interviews and marched into his old, cluttered office.
Mechanical Engineer for a safety product company
Wow, where to start
Worked on the farm next door to save money to equip my shop to do body repair 79-80
Opened and ran my own Body/Collision + mechanical repair facility from '81-'91
While running the business, became a sub Bus driver for our School District in '83, became fulltime Driver '87-'91
Had an opportunity to go fulltime as a Bus Mechanic in '91 and bid the job, did that from '91-2003
Became Transportation Director at the District in 2003, which I am still currently doing.
On the side:
I became heavily involved in computers in the late '90's, eventually getting into modifications and
competing globally in "overclocking" and 3D Benchmarking under the moniker "MrIcee". Was involved in the
early supercooling era(2001-2004), starting with water, then chilled water with -40c refrigeration custom built units, then got involved
in a testing program with a company in Denmark involving direct to CPU refrigeration at -50c which allowed us to overclock
These exploits eventually got me involved with websites that support the hobby, and I became Senior News and Review editor at 2 sites.
This led to reviewing and publishing alot of computer hardware articles, and gave me the opportunity to test for company's such as Abit, OCZ
Corsair and the aforementioned company that produced the Prometeia in Denmark.
This job involved alot of web work and email administration for staff at both sites.
After an Editors day I was flown to for 3 days in San Jose by ECS(Elitegroup) to meet with reps from Intel, AMD, Nvidia and ATI on future product intro's and releases,
I met a Senior editor from the largest tech review site in the industry "Anandtech". I eventually signed on with them and wrote several mainboard reviews
which are still online. I ended up giving up the career when both of my parents took ill, first my Dad in late 2005 with a malignant brain tumor and later my Mom in early 2009. I've not returned to that part of my career.
What I do do on the side now is Computer building + repair, virus cleaning and OS cleaning and tuning in my spare time. I also administer our school districts website and email system.
Sorry for the long dissertation.
Great. I built the IBC plant in Lavonia, Ga. Intermediate Bulk Containers > the big plastic 275 gallon bottles inside a cage. We also make plastic drums there. Helped with the other plastic drum plants upgrading equipment. Was involved with injection molding in our fibre drum plants as well.

35yrs Wastewater Treatment Facility Chief Operator, woodworker puttering by night.
Technical Support in schools.. There's nothing tech-related that I'm not expected to know and support.
22 years working with investment banks creating their business presentations with fancy charts and pictures. Have always dreamed of doing more manual work like the other members here.
It is amazing how skilled every one here is. Must be the lure of the pellet stoves, the concept must capture the imagination of the mechanically inclined. And frankly, pellet stoves are not for the people that don't like to get their hand dirty.
