Location: Beaverton, OR

I'm 29 I like to tinker around in my shop and build things I dream up. I'm at the point where I want to get more serious about my woodworking skills, projects, and direction. So I joined the Guild of Oregon woodworkers, and found out about this site through Neil at furnitology productions. I'm also near completion of a design/build/remodel degree at Portland Community College. Most of the people around me don't seem to care too much, or get excited about my ideas. So I'm seeking out people who love sharing ideas and playing off each others enthusiasm. My shop is a two car garage stuffed with tools. I hope you like what you see and I would love to hear from you!

Hey Neil, Yes. I draw up all of my projects in Sketch-up. I love that program. I try to get all my ideas down on paper, but they usually end up on a napkin. So I scan them into my computer so I don’t lose’em.

I can identify—-”Most of the people around me don’t care. So I’m seeking out people who love sharing ideas and playing off each others enthusiasm.”

No offense to our loved ones…but every time i finish something and said out a million e-mails to share my work…its great…but not the same as here…people have the same passion…and it is the place to share…

Welcome aboard…look forward to seeing your work…and your RANDOM THOUGHTS…

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
