Hello, my name is Sonny Garcia and I have a
passion for woodwork and history.

I started out my career as an engineer for General Electric Company. There I worked on accounts through out Maryland and Virginia. I have always had an interest in history and as I traveled around the country side, I was intrigued by the deep history of our area- old grist mills, mansions and estates, huge bank barns from the old days and battlefields are among my favorites to visit. I toured old homes whenever the opportunity presented itself. My wife and I joke that we were born a century too late!

As the years went on, we eventually bought a 1927 four square home and began restoring it. I fell in love with the work, which had been a hobby up until then. I liked it so much, I took on a part time job Wednesday nights and Saturdays to do historic renovation as an apprentice. I found the work fulfilling and after 7 years at General Electric, I resigned and became a full time employee of a large historical restoration team in Washington, DC. There I honed my skills while repairing window sash, glazing, installing and finishing wood floors, architectural mill work, doors and all things wood in historic homes and buildings.

Fast forward several years and I joined an architectural millwork company building an assortment of woodwork.

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

Hi there,
Welcome to LumberJocks… I joined the site myself a few months ago and will give you fair warning, this site is VERY ADDICTIVE, VERY EDUCATIONAL, and VERY FUN…. so sit back, enjoy the ride and learn from the other LJ’s as they are a group of extremely talented people that are also very friendly…

Enjoy your time here on LJ and pass the word to any of your woodworking buddies about us…
