Location: Spring Branch, TX

Spent half of my life as an independent businessman, the other half as a software developer. Been woodworking steadily for the past 6 years plus on and off since 7th grade shop class. My latest business was custom picture framing. I am a Certified Picture Framer.

Now supplementing our retirement with wood crafting.

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
