woodworking sander wanted (post #178544, reply #1 of 3)

     Dear Sir or Madam-

I am looking for a career in woodworking, as I am currently an avid hobbyist. I am familiar with filling, sanding, and finishing; because I cut, dry, and mill timber myself for use in woodturning and joinery. This leads to many imperfections that require patience and an eye for detail.

I have worked in a shared shop for over two years. I would like the opportunity to take my love for woodwoking to the next level and become a professional in this field.

Attached is a copy of my resume. Please direct your response to my email at bcspdp@gmail.com.
