I do not know how most of you got the wood bug, but mine came a little by accident and a little from my grandfathers. Actually, I am a Language Arts Teacher of 7th Graders. I love teaching; it really is my calling in life, but wood working has helped me reach some kids I just could not reach in a classroom.

My grandfathers taught me how to work with my hands by working my tail off as a kid. I was amazed at my Grandfather Preston. He could take a piece of wood and make anything. Usually that piece of wood was from some old tree the power company cut down. From my Grandfather White, I learned how to build big things such as barns and houses. But the most important lesson I learned from my Grandfather White was how to work hard. It seems to be a dirty word these days, but I love to work.

The accident part came when a friend saw some things I had made, and she asked me if I could remodel her kitchen. Like an ego trip male, I said I could. It was probably my worse work; however, a new world opened itself up to me. So I began adding tools up and making things for friends(who were trying to save a buck), and it has snowballed into a pretty good business.

During the Summer, weekends, and some nights I keep busy--and sane my I add-- by building cabinets and other things people want. I am very fortunate that I have found two things in life that make me happy--Teaching and Woodworking.

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
