Location: Tulsa, Oklahoma
Website:

My name is Rick and my shop is located outside Tulsa Oklahoma.

I am an Engineer for a manufacturing company in Tulsa but in my free time I’m an amateur woodworker. There is nothing more relaxing to me than to spend time in the shop (although free time is become increasingly hard to find).

I have been at woodworking for about 8 years now. I learned my hobby by building jigs, fixtures, and storage units for the shop. With every organizer or storage unit I build I try to incorporate different joining techniques and features. My family and friends began asking if I was ever going to build anything other than jigs and fixtures so I had to finally move on to some more challenging furniture projects. I still get some of my greatest enjoyment from adding to the shop.

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

Thanks for the welcome! I look forward to learning from you all.

My name is Rick and my shop is located outside Tulsa Oklahoma.

I am an Engineer for a manufacturing company in Tulsa but in my free time I’m an amateur woodworker. There is nothing more relaxing to me than to spend time in the shop (although free time is become increasingly hard to find).

I am relatively new to woodworking, having been at it for only about four years now. I have learned my hobby by building jigs, fixtures, and storage units for the shop. With every organizer or storage unit I build I try to incorporate different joining techniques and features. My family and friends began asking if I was ever going to build anything other than jigs and fixtures so I had to finally move on to some more challenging furniture projects. I still get some of my greatest enjoyment from adding to the shop.

Thanks again for the Welcome and I look forward to seeing your work.

Welcome to Lumberjocks. Your shop is great and I love the spice cabinet. I know what you mean about building the jigs forever. I remember that time. It lasted about two years for me. Looking forward to seeing other projects… you’re very talented.

Hi there, nice projects you have posted… I have one fun but quick question:
How much wood could a woodscrap scrap, if a woodscrap could scrap wood?
Sorry, just had to be done, the wood chuck thing just happened to get in my head…
