Location: Indianapolis, IN
Website:

Software engineer, married to my college sweetheart from Indiana University. We live in Indianapolis with our 6 year old dog black lab/chow chow, Ninja. I'm originally from Maryland but have been living in Indiana since 2000.

I've had some experience with woodworking in high school but haven't done much since. I got back into it a few years ago when I told my wife I could make us some new nightstands and bedroom furniture. I still have a lot to learn but I'm enjoying every bit of it. I try to use traditional joinery and a mix of power and hand tools. I prefer the quiet though of hand planing wood as I find hand tool work to be extremely rewarding and relaxing.

I have turned my two car garage into a mobile shop so I can move everything to the sides to make room for the cars, however my wife has been kind enough to not mind parking outside all the time :) Unfortunately, it must also share space with other house storage and lawn equipment.

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
