Location: Las Vegas, Nevada
Website: http://TheApprenticeandTheJourneyman.com

My apprenticeship for woodworking began in 1974 as I studied woodworking and carpentry at Ranken Technical Institute in St. Louis, Mo. From there I apprenticed 4 years as a union carpenter and then became a journeyman carpenter. For 4 years I worked as a residential carpenter on custom homes. The next 11 1/2 years were focused on commercial finish carpentry in high rise office buildings in downtown St. Louis. In 1989 I began working as a finish carpenter at Caesar's Palace in Las Vegas, NV. A year later I was sent to work on the island of Kauai, Hawaii where I worked on two hotel resorts for one year. I returned to Las Vegas where I continued working until I retired from carpentry in 1995.
Since 1995 I have worked as a residential real estate agent in Las Vegas. My interest and passion for woodworking continues as I have a shop at my house.

Hi there,
Welcome to LumberJocks… I joined the site myself a few months 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…

Wisty
