I'm a man of God, a family man, and a high school teacher whom also happens to find whatever time is left to get into my workshop. I'm a voracious reader and learner. I love to take the time to build new and exciting things. Anytime I can try my hand at a new technique I'm all for it. I also enjoy focusing my time on refining my craft. It's incredibly relaxing to plane a board four square or cut a set of dovetails. I'm lucky to have such an understanding wife who supports me in my endeavors.

I've sold a few pieces here and there. I'd say my dream is to take my knowledge of teaching and woodworking and to open up my own store/school when I retire from my actual job.

Another year has rolled by. We must be having too much fun, cause it seems like just yesterday when I congratulated you on 1 year.
And now it’s time for: Congratulations on your 2nd anniversary at Lumber Jocks. Thanks for helping make LJ a great place to visit and happy anniversary!
