I operate High Desert Workshop, llc. We are a design-build firm specializing in the design and construction of beautiful, well-crafted houses. Some of our projects are off the grid, entirely independent for all of their energy, waste-treatment, and water needs. We aim to create enjoyment for our clients and for ourselves through excellent, thoughtful craftsmanship.

Welcome to Lumber Jocks! This is a great place to get – or give – advice about woodworking on the forums and the project posts are a wonderful source of new ideas. I look forward to seeing your projects and posts.

To get the most feedback on your projects, it’s best to only post 1 or 2 at a time. This way you will get feedback over several days and from a wide variety of members.

Please enjoy your membership.
