Location: Wisconsin

I am a Draftsman for a custom commercial cabinet / millwork shop, and have been for 15 years.
Prior to that I was a Cabinetmaker for 8 years, and prior to that I was a cabintmaking
student. My wife and kids call me a "wood geek", because I have a definate passion and
appreciation for quality woodwork. I dont have much of a shop set-up at home, just
handtools and hand power tools. When I have a project to work on my employer allows me
to use his entire facility, in fact, I have my own key, so that's where I do all of my main work.

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
