Location: Oregon,USA

I live in the country and work with wood full time either making furniture or carving.I live within an hour of the oregon coast and am lucky to have an endless supply of red cedar and redwood driftwood for carving, plus we live in the forest that I gather all of my furniture wood from.My wife and I have both made our living as artists for about 17 years now.I as a woodworker and her as a painter and seamstress.Prior to that we lived on a remote part of PRINCE OF WALES ISLAND in southeast alaska where I was a logger for 23 years.

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 a little over a year 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…

Welcome. I’m new to this site also. Great work and choice of woods. You’re lucky to have the woods close to go picking in. By the way, you’re wife didn’t want to be in pic. So who’s the girl in pic…........oh, I just figured it out….....she’s from the woods too. OK!

Steve, I want to thank you for the antler fish carvings you gave me for my sons….they haven’t taken them off since the moment I handed them over!!! It was great getting to meet you and talk a little wood…and very cool getting to see and touch so many of your projects in real life rather than just a picture…hopefully the next time I make it over that side of the mountain we can meet again and maybe work in a little carving project. Maybe you can score one of the cedar slabs I cut for Garay while I was there!!??
