Hello and welcome to my little corner of the world wide web...

In addition to making custom woodwork, cabinetry and furniture; I make keepsake boxes. All are one-of-a-kind, using exotic hardwoods, often with inlays. When complete, I name each with an Illinois city name.
In addition to woodwork, I am a pilot and avid sailor. I have reconstructed antique aircraft (a D-17s Staggerwing and a PT-19 Cornell). It is a real thrill to strap an engine and some wheels onto a woodworking project and lift off the ground! Talk about the biggest test of your craftsmanship.

-- Anybody can become a woodworker, but only a Craftsman can hide his mistakes.

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
