I am a hobby woodworker. I am finally at the point in life where I have enough tools and time to work on this hobby. I have done mostly flat work over the years since high school but have been learning to turn on the lathe the past couple of years.

I enoy learning and meeting people that share woodworking as a hobby. One of my passions is to build a Maloof inspired rocker.

I am the past president and current member of the Show-Me Woodturners in Festus, MO. We are a growing club and welcome all newcomers of all skill levels. I am a member of the Belleville Holzschnitzers Woodcarving Club and a member of the IWCS - International Wood Collectors Society.

Currently I am working out of a small space of 12' by 14' and with a bandsaw, sander, grinder, table saw and lathe. It is a cramped space but I am glad that I have a place to enjoy my hobby.

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.

Nice bottlestoppers, Underdog. The shapes look comfortable to grab. I’ve heard mixed reports about the metal and rubber stoppers, though. Mostly not good. How do you like their perfomance? While they look nice, modern or contemporary, I heard they don’t perform that well. Let me know. Thanks.
