Minneapolis area?

Recommended Posts

I'm hoping to be moving that way in a year or so. I have a few friends in the Plymouth maple grove area.
Either of you know of any good jobs for a civil engineer?

LOL, I would be in big trouble if I blew things up. I am the guy that is designing machines to demil explosives. Although some day I hope to be on the other side.

Go back and get a mechanical degree??

:( i really should have gotten a mechanical degree. I thought long and hard about after i move to the cities to apply for the U of M masters in mechanical program, i just don't think i can ever give money to that school, the rivalry is just too deep.

Lol. That was directed mainly @Chestnut. Just making sure he knows that civil engineers are the red-headed step child of the engineering disciplines. 

We may literally be the red-headed step child. We get beat up, yelled at, and abused but we keep working and no body appreciates us.

I was just messing with you. I know civil engineers do a lot of hard work like the below image. :lol:1358ff0fcd63e8d459660c0ec7702aad.jpg

Oh i know you were messing i was returning some fun.

I also don't see anything wrong with that design. Under deck trusses are quite common.

I am in Eden Prairie,  If you would like to meet or just exchange contact info.  Leave me a private message.  Why?  I really don't have any other woodworkers talk woodworking with.
