I suppose I'd describe myself as an avid woodworker, blogger, and marketer. It's a bit tough balancing my weekend job, night job, and weekend job, but I'm doing what I love. I'm most inspired by traditional design, but with a modern twist. Much of my work is done in walnut and cherry, as I prefer minimalistic finishes with an accent on the wood itself. I would say I have a bit of a Moserian philosophy on the craft. I also run a video blog on woodworking at www.theboisshop.com. This started as a way of just documenting the work I was doing in the shop, but has turned into as much of a passion for me as the woodworking itself.

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

Welcome to Lumber Jocks! I have found the forums to be a great place to get and give advice about woodworking and I often gain new insights from the project posts. (I see you stopped there already.) I hope you find this site as enjoyable and useful as I do.
