I have been working wood on and off now four about 20 years. I love it! I have really grown to appreciate the finer aspects of the art and craftsmanship involved. I just love seeing a piece that strikes the perfect balance between the two.

I work out of a two car garage in my house. I used to think that this was not enough space but after seeing some of the excellent projects that others have turned out in smaller spaces I now feel blessed too have the tools and space I have

I would say my biggest challenges at this point are lumber storage and shop organization. I would like to spend more time in maximizing my space but that takes away from my "sawdust" time. If I could just get rid of my day job... but then would have no money for lumber - darn.

I have not had any formal skills or design training outside of what I took in High School and at Palomar JC some years ago. I would love to take a week in the next couple of years and attend one of the upper level wood schools on the west coast or back east.

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
