Location: Twin Cities

Spent 13 years as a professional furniture designer/cabinetmaker.
Allergies to wood dust made me switch to an engineering career for 20 years. Retired 5 years ago, could afford a LOT of dust collection and protective equipment, got back into building furniture.

Specialties are Nakashima and Maloof style furniture and using unusual and exotic woods (the ones that got my lungs into trouble!).

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.

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…


-- New Project = New Tool... it's just the way it is, don't fight it... :)

Have your say...
