I have been doing woodworking for some 40 years now. Started out in a cabinet shop / lumber yard right out of high school. Changed careers after about 4 years and am now back into woodworking full time. I have always loved woodworking, creating something out of a straight piece of wood. I do custom woodworking as well as craft Mission, Arts and Crafts Clocks, frames, bookracks and other items.

This picture, as you can tell, is in my younger day’s!!! Some have named the picture ”Desperado” But even back then I enjoyed helping my Dad with what ever woodworking or building he was doing..

Better later than never, Desperado…? (Doing the shuffle thing tonight.)

Welcome to the one and the only LumberJocks website.

I know you’re doing well, that plate shelf you just posted a couple of days ago is great! Take care.

I’m going to be doing the holiday shop (santa’s work shop) for a few of the local schools in my area ! I’m looking for ideas for fast , easy projects with little cost to make , so I can donate them for the under privileged childeren to give to their parents for the holidays (x-mas & such) . Childern of all walks of life also find joy in giving to their parents and other family members on the holidays , It gives them a sense of pride,and happyness! The school asks that I make sure that it would be something of a non-religious background to all cultures !If anyone has any plans or ideas please send them to me soon december 17th is my deadline. Thank you everyone that took the time to read this !Happy thanks giving!!!!!


(note: I have access to lots of scrap 2×4 2×6 2×8 2×10 2×12 all less than 24” long free , also kids have be able to carry it ,Thanks again! )

-- I love this site !
