Welcome to my LumberJocks' webpage.

I joined the LumberJocks community on January 4, 2007 and, since then, have tried my hand at different woodworking techniques. I am enjoying my woodworking experience, especially with the support and expertise I get here at the LJ community.

My journey thus far can be explored through the projects and blogs that I have posted. My pride and joy is the Table Challenge Entry. Why is it so special? 1) I did it... 2) it is made from beautiful willow, 3) I was able to do it, 4) it is so cute, and 5) I took up the challenge, tried a whole bunch of new skills and was able to produce a "table that was stable".

In the summer of 2008, inspired by projects posted by my fellow LumberJocks, I started building "Fairy Doors" and oh, what fun I'm having!!! A little bit of technical and a whole lot of creativity go into these little projects.

- Debbie

Your woodworking may be the best outlet for your creative talents. As your experience unfolds, your inner direction may fall towards special areas of the craft. You may also find that the work may be an indicator of your stresses and anxiety, and conversely, your happiness and serenity.

Debbie, thanks for the clean shop comments. I probably should have left it dirty to make it look like I was doing something.

Debbie, as you know, I’m in Vancouver with my grandchildren. My oldest grandchild and only granddaughter, Maddie, (I tell her that she’s my favorite granddaughter. LOL) was sitting looking at my laptop which I left on to the home page of this site.

Your name appears at the top the the Jocks list, so she asked me, “Who’s Debbie?”

Now it was important to answer this as unambiguously as one can for a nine year old. (I won’t go into the details of this, suffice it to say Debbie is the reason Maddie’s mother is no longer married to Maddie’s father.)

So I showed her your projects and described you as a Artist with Wood. Her eyes lit up and she asked to see more of your work. This I gladly did, because Maddie has exhibited real artistic appreciation herself and enrolls every summer in a Summer Art Class.

“Are they for sale, Grandpa?” Can we buy her stuff? She loved you first box and said that she could put all kinds of treasures in it.

I thought that you’d appreciate hearing about an admirer. I told her that I would let you know that she likes your work.
