Mechanical Art is a hobby in which I construct mechanical contractions that operate with gears.
Some of the larger gears are cut of Baltic Birch plywood using a scroll saw and drill press.

Chalice is a Catholic Child Sponsor Program
Starting in 2013 I sponsored Valhery and her mother with the Chalice Program.
Valhery is residing in Santiago, Chile who lives with her single mother and grandparents in a two room wooden house.
She just started school, and enjoys playing outside with the other children her age.
I encourage everyone to sponsor a child in need.
