Hello friends, I am proud to introduce you to my new website. It has taken me a little while to get it all together and I am learning as I go.
I hope you may join me on here for my continued blog work and extras not shown on lumberjocks.
My work on Lumberjocks will carry on and I will use both arenas to display my ideas, projects and share comments!
This website will be informational (I hope), entertaining, as well as a store to sell my works or finds. The theme will continue to be the use of traditional hand tools, spoons, and various woodcraft projects including turning, cabinetry, tinsmithing, and any other thing I find of interest to share!
My sincere appreciation for all of my LJ buddies and their continued support, talents and inspiration. This is a fine web community and a big thanks to the creators of Lumberjocks for giving all of us artisans this wonderful platform to showcase our talents, get questions answered and have some laughs along the way as well.
As much as some of my writings may go on about the over amount of technology, endless electric handheld gadgets, machines etc. Life moves forward and it is important to keep traditions alive but also embrace what the future brings. If not for the invention of the internet all of this would not be possible, and for that I am grateful.
With that said I hope you will not mind joining me on a website that brings back the focus of the woods, the old trades and sounds of shavings soaring from the bench to the piles on the shop floor! The colors of all seasons, the tales of better days, those special hand tools used, and crafts displayed for sale and made by hand.

Be well, and enjoy!
