In the name of matrimonial harmony we are now living in Webster, NY, just east of Rochester. A brisk 12-minute walk from my in-laws.

I live here with my wife and two sons, ages 3 and 5. They love coming down to help me, I think they have measured almost everything in the shop with my calipers, at least twice.

As a digital design engineer by day for a local communications company, and a father, woodworker, skier, biker, etc. the rest of the time, I don't have too much free time. We had our new house built and had the builder leave a lot unfinished. So I am working on building our custom built-ins for the walk-in closets and other such features.

So hopefully we will be here for a long time.

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

hey fellow western newyorker. hey, seeing that we are pretty close to each other. I was wondering if you had any advice on where to get lumber. I’m new to wood working. I’m really just setting up shop. I am looking to start purchacing rough cut lumber soon. I was looking at quaker mill, niagrara lumber, and advantage. Any advice on these mills or any other local mills would be very appriciated. thanks.

those are some beautiful chairs by the way!
