Location: SW Ohio

Retired home inspector/remodeler/physician asst. (long

I served as a combat medic (Navy corpsman) with the Marines in Vietnam in '69. I had a rough time for the next 25 years but thanks to some caring professionals and loving family, my head works at least part time now.

I love to invent and manufacture safety related shop equipment. We moved to SW Ohio last year to be near grandkids and bought a repo on 5 acres.

Wife found a used pole barn on craigslist and the sellers delivered it. Oldest grandson and his buddies were in carpentry at the local high school so I had some pretty good help.

I built my shop inside and installed a loft overhead for storage.

We have 4 labs, one of each color with an extra yellow and they're spoiled rotten.

Gardening, reading and oh yeah...I do some woodworking once in awhile.

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

Hi there,
Welcome to LumberJocks… I joined the site myself a little over a year ago and will give you fair warning, this site is VERY ADDICTIVE, VERY EDUCATIONAL, and VERY FUN…. so sit back, enjoy the ride and learn from the other LJ’s as they are a group of extremely talented people that are also very friendly…

Enjoy your time here on LJ and pass the word to any of your woodworking buddies about us…
