In addition to the good fortune of loving what I do, I am lucky enough to work in an office filled with my Dad's furniture.  Dad and his best friend, Orvis, built all the furniture at Salt River Engineering. 

My Dad is a marvelous carpenter (and a pretty remarkable father).  He and Orvis rebuilt the front window at the office and restored the old trim and baseboards.   The furniture at Salt River Engineering is mission-style quarter-sawn oak.

He knows his way around a plate of shrimp, too!
