Website:

I am a hobbyist woodworker who has played around with woodworking for many years but never got too serious about it. Now that I have retired, I am spending more time at this, buying more tools and constantly learning. I am beginning to move past the stage of not being able to clearly distinguish my butt from a hole in the ground to basic competency.

What I love about woodworking is the ability to meld my right brain and left brain functions into a product that is logically developed, functional, creatively shaped (product and/or process) and aesthetically pleasing. After a professional career that seldom yielded tangible, visible rewards, I am finding woodworking to be incredibly satisfying. Like anything, I find moments of frustration. On the other hand, the pleasure of the product causes me, at times, to covertly stare at the results in a way that would publicly be embarrassing. Sort of a closet glee. Woodworking helps to make my life good.

I really appreciate this forum and look forward to years of participation.

¡Que le vaya bien!

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
