Location: Fairfield, Ohio

I have been a carpenter for about 30 years. My Grandfather was a cabinet maker who made funiture. Watching him in his shop is what inspired me to be a carpenter. My only regret in life is that I wasnt born sooner so that I could have studied under him. He was a true master of his craft. I have always been interested in wood working but, never had the time. About a year ago a customer had me build him a book case. Being unable to provide doors, which was built by somone else, I was actually imbarrised. This is what inspired my cabinet thats posted here. I now know how to make doors. So, I got busy and agumented my tools I have for my trade and started building my wood shop. For my work I have a 12" compound mitre saw with stand. Compressor with nailers. Portable 10" table saw, which is what I built my cabinet with. All the hand tools a carpenter would have including two routers, ect. I have added a 10" table saw, 9" band saw which didnt take long to be too small, a router table, a wood lathe 14"x 42" I think is the size, a intermeadate carving set, I found that I can carve in the winter when its too cold to work outside. a 4'x 6' work bench on rollers, my shop is a one bay garage. This is why I like building boxes. I dont need alot of space. Carving is new to me I started last winter but enjoy it very much. Hopfully I will gain the confidence to show off my work soon. I am also a member of the Ohio National Guard. Always support our troops!!! As they are Americas youth. I spent 20 years as a Navy Seabee , as a carpenter, and now have 4 yrs. as a Guardsman where I'm in the Military Police.

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
