Location: Laguna Hills, CA

My name is Heidi : )
I'm a busy mom who also works part time & enjoys fitting in a little wood carving here & there as time permits. I did a couple of projects using wood back in art class, and have always been a "crafty" artistic person (I enjoy toll painting, jewelry making, craft projects, photography, etc.) so after meeting my boyfriend, Keith (, it didn't take much to peak my interest into woodworking...most specifically carving. Watching Keith do what he does really inspires me to try. I'm still pretty new at it....only been doing it for about 5 years now, but i really enjoy it.

With a boyfriend who does woodworking/cabinetry/furniture for a living, over the past few years I've learned how to use the bandsaw, spindle sander, chop/miter saw, biscuit joiner, Kreg machine, router, drill press, jig saw, orbital sander, scroll saw, various chissles and gouges, various hand tools, and probably a few other things that I can't think of at the moment, so I'm able to help out a little bit in the shop from time to time if need be. Otherwise I find my own projects to occupy myself with so we can be in the shop together quite often.

Right now I'm just enjoying my hobby, and being mom to my 2 kids. I'm still learning and hope to improve as I go.

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
