Hi, my name is Michael. I'm a semi-retired building contractor. I've gone from hand tools to all power tools. I have returned to hand chisels and a mallet. I guess I missed swinging a well balanced hammer!
After 42 years in the trades the last thing I wanted to accomplish was to sculpt and carve wood. I enjoy the sound and feel of a wooden mallet, the smell of real wood and seeing it take shape.
I live with Terri Lynne my wife of 9 years. She does beautiful intarsia work and is very inspirational to work with. She is a very talented artist in many fields!

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

Hi there,
Welcome to LumberJocks… I joined the site myself a few months ago and will give you fair warning, this site is VERY ADDICTIVE, VERY EDUCATIONAL, and VERY FUN…. so sit back, enjoy the ride and learn from the other LJ’s as they are a group of extremely talented people that are also very friendly…

Enjoy your time here on LJ and pass the word to any of your woodworking buddies about us…

Wisty
