Retired Navy.
Started woodworking in 1967.
750 Square foot garage/shop (no cars allowed.)
Enjoying working around the house.

I believe if I'm gonna spend my time and money to build something it should be built long enough for my grandkids to inherit it. I'm still using the stuff I built in '67!

I think jigs are the way to go and I love making them.

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

Lovely to connect Pete – as an Aussie I take my hat off to you and the service you gave to your country. I also LOVE your build it to last mind set – and thankyou for your encouragement – I am trying to recreate these pieces using everything and doing it eco friendly as well – as I live on a carbon foot print property in country Aus :)
