Website: http://ravensedgetoolworks.com

I am an infill plane maker and a recreational woodworker in the frozen north. I currently serve on the board of directors for the Alaska Creative Woodworker's Association.

In my spare time on the evenings and weekends, I'm building a log house. Other than hiring out the log package and some of the excavation and roofing, I've done everything else by myself.

I have used the project as an excuse to do woodworking projects. For instance, I've had to mortise all of the electrical outlets in the log walls. I also made my own loft floor decking (see photos on my project page). I have a stack of hickory lumber in the basement waiting to become the kitchen cabinets.

I moved to Alaska in 1996.
Officially, there is no snow in Anchorage. However, I have snow at my house (1200 ft).

Welcome to the fold. Do you know my friend Rick Jensen? Actually I think he is in Wassilla along with another shipmate of mine. The way he talked there were so few of you up there that you all must know each other.
Anyway welcome.
