Location: Rincon, PR

Born and raised in Puerto Rico, I spent many years in the mainland, going from Texas to Kansas to Florida to Alabama and back to Florida. In 2003 I got my dream to go back home to the Island, but it was not to be. Things did not work out and I had to return to Florida, working in environmental labs, which has been my life's work. Got recruited by the wrong people, and have been unemployed for a while. Decided that the time is good to return home and open a woodshop there.

I picked up woodworking many years ago while I was in school at Texas A&M, built several pieces, but when I moved on, I did not have the funds to build my own workshop. So, for many years, I did what I could with a circular saw and other tools, until my return to Florida. I have been accumulating tools and can say I have a functional though disorganized shop.

I am a surfer, and being a surfer is like being in the Mafia... you can never leave it. I am also a guitar player.

Hey Slacker,

Thanks for the compliment…If your interested, I’m sure you could get carving some cool stuff. I’ve only been in it for 4 years, and I had never picked up a chainsaw before I started carving…add me as a buddy, I’ll keep you posted when my how to carve site launches…

-- is a new, developing resource for woodcarvers, especially those interested in chainsaw carving. Come check out videos, pictures, how to's and more!
