Website:

I am 70 years young and have been woodworking since I was 12 years old. I was introduced to woodworking by a custom woodworker who owned a one man custom woodworking shop in Chicago Illinois. He was my mentor until his passing. I will never forget his smile and all the things He tought me. I have been retired for 15 years and was a full time firegihgter retiring as a Lieutenant assigned to a advanced life support engine company at time of retirement NW of Chicago Illinois.
I build furniture for myself, my family and take on ocassional commisions from people I know. The Good Lord permitting I will be woodworking for many more years to come. My Oldest grandson just returned from a 15 month assignment in Afghanistan, He is with the Arizona National Guard. God bless all our troops and all my brother firefighters for keeping our country free and safe.

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.
