Location: Virginia Beach, Virginia

Previously I mostly did DIY projects around the house, but over the past couple of years have upgraded equipment adding a planer, jointer, SCMS, router table, dovetail jig, and a cabinet saw.

Not sure if I will ever be skilled enough or have the patience for big furniture projects but I am certainly enjoying building some smaller ones and pleased with the results.

I enjoy projects done in the workshop, and been slowly getting my shop and tools organized.

Projects have been multi-level deck and stairs, built in bookcases, fireplace mantle, storage shed, small tables, picture frames, jewelry boxes, and a coffee table.

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
