Location: Portland OR, West Hills

Hi I have been doing woodworking for 3 years. I started when I was 14 years old and I'm still doing it. I come from an engineering back round so I was around machinery my yonger ages of my childhood. My grandfather had some woodworking machinery in which he used. When my grandfather turned 82 he gave me the shop because of old age. That will be moment I will remember my whole life.

When I started I had the basic skill in woodworking, but not enough to create a great piece of furniture. Most of my skills I have today are skills I taught myself through the long path of woodworking. Being only in my mid teens I have a lot more skills to learn.

"If you try harder it will come"


I am Michael
I'm a woodworker
Table Saw
Drill Press
All come into view when I enter my shop
The smell of sawdust tells me I'm in my element.
The ring of the saw blade stings my ears as I cut
through the solid fibers of the wood.
As my skills grow, my thinking develops
and new techniques appear.
Wood is my blood as if I was
born as a tree.

Well I should introduce myself. I’m 16 years old and have been doing woodworking for 3 years know. I come from an engineering back round so that helps a lot. My shop is not big but suites my needs. This year I have been noticed by local people of Portland OR and have done some costume woodwork. My recent project is building a chair out of a an amazing piece of cedar.
(Here are some pics of my shop and projects)

That’s a fine looking table. Keep up that learning. Thanks for posting these pictures and those of your shop as well.

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
