Dick Anderson is a retired high school shop instructor with a passion for learning and building things. Having often taken the path less traveled, it has made all the difference. From building timber-framed covered bridges and log cabins to chainsaw wood carving, shoe making, and welded yard art, to name a few. Learning should be serious fun. Believe me when I say, “Crossing a bridge in your future will be a bit easier after you have built one or two.”
