Myself:

A finish carpenter with 14 years field and shop experience. I've done everything from framing,cabinetry,architectual millwork,casework interior,exterior. I also done many at home projects along the lines of boxes,hutches,chessboards,and the usual stuff around the house. My next goal is to start building ceder strip boats, for fishing. Now I moved up to Maine I shouild find plenty of time to do just that.

Turns out, I found a job doing just that. I now work building custom interiors for a yacht company. We build custom sailing vessles, and I somehow landed this killer job doing joinery and benchwork. While I am never actually in the ship, I do work with all the funky shapes you can imagine in a boat that can be up to 190' long! It's a great job that is challenging and rewarding. I feel I am working in one of the highest levels there are (woodworking that is). These guys know a lot, and I plan on a lot of learning in the next few years. It really helps the day go by. Did I mention we have a 3 day weekend, every week?

As it always does things change. I have a new job much closer to home, now I can focus on my own stuff. I work for a commercial case work shop located in Hermon, ME. I know the work isn't even close to what I was doing but I get to come home nightly. I still enjoy the job though and I am now able to pursue my own dreams. I'll keep you posted, thanks for checking me out.

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
