The Internet is full of fascinating stuff. No matter where your interests may lie, you can find blogs and websites that entertain and educate. A Shipwright in Training: from psychologist to boatbuilder is one of those blogs that I enjoy reading so I’d thought I’d share it here.
About the blogger:
My name is Tom Daniels. I’m a graduate of The Evergreen State College and SUNY Buffalo. That got me to being a PhD, and helped fund a nice little homestead in Wisconsin. I’ve been an amateur woodworker for 20+ years. When I was living in Madison, I raced on lake Mendota twice a week with my longtime captain and friend, Bob Beilman. I’ve worked as a psychologist in private practice for the past 14 years, mostly with kids and families.
Nowadays I’m living in Newport RI, going to school for boat restoration, and generally hanging out doing things with wood all day long. I’ve been blessed with some of the most amazing friends back in Madison and I miss them like crazy. Otherwise, I’m a very lucky guy.
Here’s a short video in which the blogger is interviewed.
There’s a lot here but to get a flavor, check out The workshop at Mystic and finishing up…
Tom’s is pursuing a type of life that most will only dream about and the Internet (and Tom) allows us a peak in. Thanks for sharing!
