Location: Southern Indiana

I started wood working about 25 years ago. I have learned a lot since then. I look back now on early things I made and think, that is a real piece of junk, but my wife always thought they were great.

I have a garage shop with tablesaw, bandsaw, router table, drum sander, grinders,lathe, sanders, and assocated hand tools.

I got the lathe a couple of years ago and that is my big passion now. Not that I don't do any other work but that takes presedents.

I make all kinds of things from the armoire that I have listed to chessboards from exotic wood to coffee tables, bottle stoppers, peens, bowls, domino sets, etc...

My brother in law pointed me to this site so maybe he will see this and talk to me more.

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
