Iv’e been wood working for about 6 years since my son gave me a Jet 10 inch power saw. since then I graduated to taking a class at Pinole Valley high school and then Mt Diablo adult Ed. I am now retired and working in the Rossmoor wood shop.
Built a Greene and Greene style desk and Gamble Entry table from plans in wood mag which I have adapted to that style
more photos to appear here once I learn more about this site and how to post photo’s…
See my website which shows projects presented at Diablo woodworkers page.

Welcome to LJ’s, correct me if I’m wrong, however your reference to Pinole and Mt Diablo, I am going to guess your some where in California. I grew up in Cupertino. Looked at your projects nice boxes, I have tried many and get better every time, should have taken a class and saved some tim and wood.

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
