Location: Lafayette, IN

i'm 30 years old and live in lafayette, in. i work as a union electrician. my profile picture is me working on top of a 300ft tall wind turbine. i mainly do commercial and industrial electrical, as i have a background in CAD/CAM and mechanical engineering.

my shop is a converted 2 car garage. i've been a woodworker for about 3 years. i build a variety of items, but mostly custom furniture pieces. i am fortunate enough to keep a somewhat steady stream of commissions going. it's enough to keep me busy in my down time from my "real" job. however, i'm nowhere near making the income to take the jump to full-time pro.

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
