I am a Residential Designer and carpenter by trade, emphasis on designer, mostly.

I have been doing small woodworking projects for years, but never anything great or even very nice. It seems that ADHD can make me very impatient and want to rush through projects.

The finding of B-12 has severely curbed that impatience and I have, in the last couple of years, found that I have a talent for fine woodworking. God has imparted to me a gift and is in the process of refining it.

I have a step-daughter and 3 boys. My 3 boys are all young, but they are all anxious to work with Daddy in the shed doing their own project. The oldest boy has his own tool set, with real tools, so he and I can build his projects together.

The middle son is just turning the age where I can get him to actually finish a project. It is amazing to see what they can do.

My youngest son is a toddler, so I am waiting to see what direction he will go in.

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

Dennis: Glad to have you as a buddy.

I made a pulpit that is being used at the Fish Locker Ministries in Ridgley. You should stop in and take a look. I’m not sure what it’s hours are for the coffee shop.

Oh, you are the one who made it, huh? Looks nice.

I am getting ready to make one for my church in Queenstown, but it is a slow process, not going to rush it, no one knows I am making it, yet. This will be a gift.
