I am and have beed a Police Detective for 23 years now. I am currently assigned to the Homicide Unit. I started woodworking about five years ago and am totally addicted. I also am a woodturner, which is a whole different religion in itself. So far, I have completed a living room table, a night stand table, a shaker bench, a computer desk, an entryway table and a cedar chest and a high chair. I also build Doug Stowe type boxes. My garage workshop has just undergone a transformation with free kichen cabinets that I made into a 14' long side bench.

Welcome to Lumberjocks. The projects are an inspiration, the information is priceless and the people are supportive. The only problem is, the site can get addictive.

God Bless
