Location: Reading, Ohio

I grew up with wood, my father a farm boy at heart was constantly building something – doghouses, workbenches, and remodeling our 150-year old house. In the early 60’s I hacked out a derringer, wrecking every file my father had.

In 1965 I started a co-op program with Ohio University and Cincinnati Milling Machine (later Cincinnati Milacron and now vaporized). The 2-year mechanical engineering program was hands on training with machine tools (Lathes, Milling Machines, Grinders and NC). I learned precision work. Machine Design came naturally.

With metalworking taking up the daytime, my hobbies turned to wood. My first real paycheck went for a Sears 12” radial arm saw. I started building my shop. 1976 saw the start of making wood models of machine tools. The profits purchased tools. Engineer by day – model maker at night worked quite well.

Computer 3D took over the model market, but I still have the tools....

I still collect and rebuild hand tools, power tools, and machine tools. I am a tool nut!

The Cincinnati Woodworking Club has been a very important part of my woodworking since 1980. I now serve as one of the group leaders for the central group. Please come see us at

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

Hi there,
Welcome to LumberJocks… I joined the site myself just about 2 years 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…
I apologize for the late welcome but I am currently serving overseas and don’t have a lot of spare time on my hands.

Enjoy your time here on LJ and pass the word to any of your woodworking buddies about us…
