I'm a student currently just finishing up the carpentry program at NSCC. I've had a love of woodworking and joinery from a young age and having a love of playing with lego, but also wood. My father, and my uncle and grandfather (on moms side) were all carpenters by trade, all of which had learned the trade from my Master Joiner Grandpa Rollo. He was the prime inspiration and motivated for me to really become serious about my woodworking and consider it a career, to his honour I do all my work with pride.
I got introduced to LumberJocks by my buddy in Carp. school Keelan. He has become a good friend and colleague of mine.
I'll post pics of previous projects, although finished, you'll see some of the work, and on any new projects, I'll do my best to remember to stop and take some photos.

Alright, did a lot of work the past while, even though it seems like I haven’t. I’ve been busy working!I started with the footboard, I first lined all the slats up in between the rails. This was probably one of the most frustrating par...
