Website:

I was born in NJ, and lived there until I was 46, then moved to NC in 2005 and I've been here since. I'm married with two beautiful daughters and an understanding wife, we also share the house with three english bulldogs and a cat.

I've been working with wood off and on since I was 10, we didn't have much money and my Dad was handy and always building things, I was the kid that followed suit. I would like to find a way to make this woodworking gig viable. I've built Kitchen cabinets and sold them, but there's no fun fun and not much profit in that. But I do like casework, and making boxes and furniture. It's funny how different parts of the country have different needs. I've spent alot of time in Vermont and natural, rough pieces sell, in NJ antibues and classic pieces sell, but I still can't find what sells down here in NC. So my quest continues.

Thank you for having me, I'm hoping to hang around a while.

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
