Website:

I am now retired from an aviation career and am devoting considerable time to my woodworking. As part of retiring we moved to a new house (new to us) and I spent the last several months building a new basement shop. While I have some machinery my focus is on hand tools and I recently completed several pieces of furniture and am now underway on a hall table and remodeling our kitchen.

My woodworking background started with designing and building a home and a number of agricultural buildings. This was followed by completion of a restoration of a large Victorian home for use as a B&B. I then became interested in boating and restoration of antique wooden boats and spent about 16 years very involved in that. I decided that hobby was too expensive for retirement and converted to furniture, clock and box making and other related projects over the last four years - the small stuff is primarily used as gifts and seem appreciated.

Don, Welcome to Lumberjocks. You’ll love it here because it’s a wonderful place for woodworkers of all kinds.

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 almost 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…
