Location: Cambridge, Ma

Started woodworking in the 80's right after leaving the Navy.
I am originally from Western Mass but now live in Cambridge, with a shop in Wakefield, Ma.

Have been and still am a carpenter, cabinetmaker and everything in between.
I was lucky enough to learn most of my woodworking from antique reproduction makers and I have even built a few of my own.

Right now and in this economy I am building anything that will keep me alive!!!

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
