My name is Jeff Starr. I have enjoyed art in a variety of mediums all of my life. I didn't happen upon engraving until a couple of years ago. I had just returned home from serving with my guard unit in Iraq and was waiting a few months before I could get back into school at ASU where I earned my degree in Industrial Design. I saw examples of gun stock engraving and fell in love with this art form. I knew it was something I could learn, so I invested in the engraver and equipment needed and started practicing on everything wood I could find.
I am thrilled as I see how pleased my customers are with my work. My dream is that one day I can earn my dollar with my engravings but for now I do it part time on the side. It is a hobby that is slowly becoming more profitable with time.
I hope you enjoy my work. Feel free to contact me by email at starrman20@yahoo.com for any questions. I really enjoy the fun friendly atmosphere here on Lumberjocks and appreciate all of your compliments, feedback and advice.

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
