Location: Florissant, Missouri

I live in historic Florissant, Missouri. Florissant is in St.Louis County & on the Muddy Missouri River just upstream of the Mighty Mississippi River.

I've been interested in woodworking since I was about 15. I have too many hobbies & try to combine my hobbies to make interesting & useful projects.

Hello to all you fellow termites!

Thanks for the Welcome!

LJ is pretty cool… I see that some of you other members are insomniacs like me. Seems like the best time to get on the computer is at night so the wife doesn’t have to complain about the noise from the planer in the garage.

Do some of you members have the same problem as me?... Too Many Hobbies? I do try to keep the hobbies kind of related & have some of my projects compliment each other. I’ll post a few of my past projects that will give you an idea of the type of “stuff” I like to work on.

Thanks Again for the Welcome!

Lived in Florrisant when we moved to the St. Louis area in 1962. First baby, second baby then moved to Webster Groves.

Great to have you here.

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
