Location: Rockford Illinois

Currently, I live in the Northern Illinois area. While in the U.S. Navy(at a shore command) my roommate tought me carpentry. When I got out it was the best paying job I could find and built houses on and off for years while putting myself thuough college. The last part of my college career I was working in a machine shop making large milling machines. When that business shut down I somehow ended up in banking. My heart is in manufacturing and woodworking so to that end I bought a ShopBot CNC Router. Lots of possibilities there but the hard part is where to start what to make that sells? However, if there is something someone needs that I can help with repetative parts, 3D carving or whatever ya need I would be happy to help if I can. Lumberjocks is a great site alot of knowledge and support I look forward to talking to as many of you as I can and learning as much as I can. My goal is to make a living in woodwork.

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
