I was born, raised and have lived in California all my life, but have been fortunate enough through all those years to have had the opportunity to see and visit every state in the union. Such a beautiful country!!! Fortunately my second hobby is photography.
I worked for IBM for 35 years and retired in 2000 to Santa Rosa, Ca., just north of San Francisco.
That is where my woodworking "part time hobby of 35 years" started to take the wonderful turn to "full time hobby". I built up my shop equipment from a Shopsmith to a two car garage shop with much better equipment. After kind of finding my "niche" in what I wanted to make , my wife and I had the opportunity to move to the higher foothills, east of Sacramento, to Pollock Pines.
FINALLY, I was able to have a "REAL" woodshop !!!
I have started my business called "Majestic Eagle Woodworks". The name came from the fact that I am totally fascinated by the eagles I saw while in Alaska, their size, grace, power, and sheer "Majesty"........
I specialize mostly in custom Jewelry boxes, Tea boxes and Keepsake boxes. I also enjoy making custom Money clips, Hair sticks/forks and Humidors. Some of my past work can be seen not only here as a project but also at my flickr site gallery:
My work that is currently available can be purchase at:
Thank you and Enjoy !
