I love woodworking and have since I was in high school way too many years ago. I am an engineer an have been working as one for over 40 years (now you can see why high school was along time ago).

I find it very difficult to throw away any scrap of wood! Small projects require small pieces and I have many of those.

February 2012, updated my photo including my better half going on 45 years!

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

I know! I only signed up last week!

Did you happen to see my sofa table project (on the seventh page)? I ask because you are located in Iowa.

I ask because the oak in that table is 100 year old native Iowa Red Oak. Grown, cut, and milled in Iowa and used in the farm house built in 1908; where my wife spent some of her childhood just south of Clarion Iowa in Wright county
