Location: Boca Raton, FL
Website:

I am a Computer Systems Engineer, worked in the oil field as a Field Engineer in South America then moved to europe and worked there designing Industrial Computer Systems Hardware and now do mostly consulting to Telecom companies, as a result I have done and continue to do quite a bit of traveling.
My love of the wood and woodworking was sparked when I was a teenager in middle/high school I was lucky enough to take a class in woodworking.
I love the smell and the feel of real wood, I totally despise any of the engineered materials that are used nowdays to make furniture. The only one I will sort of accept is the Plywood for the obvious reasons that we all know, stability and cost yet a close facsimile of real wood. But you will never catch me using MDF or particle board except to be used for a jig.
I have finally been able to invest on some machinery to be put to good use in my upcoming projects.
I am also very glad I found this website, it is very inspirational, thanks to the webmaster and to all who participate.

Jerry, the z stands for the beginning of my last name

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.
