Retired truck driver. Love wood, nature, life. Been buying tools over the years , now get the chance to use them. Look forward to share what I've been doing. Work a lot with antler, scrimshaw involved. Just made my first canes. A bow rack, knife stands, and some first attempt knife handles. Well most everything is first attempt. I also draw and paint. Wildlife, birds of prey mostly, but love them all. Guess that's where my wood working started, making frames to cut costs. Avid hiker in my younger days. Now I go when I can. Collect books, knives and apparently my own art work, LOL, . Anyway that's me in a nut shell, where I probably belong, be seein' ya'll.

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

Would like to invite ya’ll to visit my photo site at photobucket. com, and look up mtnwild. I have other projects there that I do that don’t qualify for this site. Art work, knives, scrimshaw and such. Just thought I’d share. Do all this stuff as a hobby, don’t have a business, enjoy.

Love it…someone once told me if you dadoe in strips on one side of a board and then dado the opposite direction on the reverse you’ll end up with ‘cubes’ without the fuss. This looks good.
