Thank you for checking out my projects. It took over 20 years living in the High Desert of Central Oregon before realizing the beauty hidden under the ugly bark of the Juniper Tree. Most people living here consider juniper trees as just a weed,....intrusive, dirty, and used mostly for firewood and fence posts....and for the most part I would agree. But there is some amazing beauty to be found among these trees when you know where to look....and the first day I discovered it I knew I had just learned what my creative style would be inspired by. I spent several years clear cutting hundreds of acres of juniper for improving range management and watershed projects with such a blind eye to the possibilities for the twisted limbs left behind. With a new outlook on these trees I see projects everywhere. I made my first project in July of 2010 and hope to keep raising the bar on quality and complexity with each piece. Thanks again for looking, I hope you enjoy watching these projects as much as I like building them.

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

Hi there,
Welcome to LumberJocks… I joined the site myself a little over a year 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

I like the looks of the wood,but not sure how strong it is. Is it like pine or Oak?

Good for you as to using what some can only destroy.

Unfortunately, I’m still too new to woodworking to give you a comparison to other woods, I’ve never built anything out of cut lumber. Most of my projects have been using limbs and stumps. I’m just recently starting an interest in furniture building, and I have slowly stated milling boards, beams, and mantels with my chainsaw mill. So far am pretty happy with the results.
