Leveraging my comprehensive woodworking, and metal skill set I want to learn how to build and maintain exhibitions and expand my knowledge base of tool maintenance.  Taking into consideration my love of working with my hands and my desire to give back to the community I believe I would be an excellent candidate for shop assistant and/or teaching positions.
