I am a 'Soon-to-Retire' General Contractor. I have dabbled in woodworking all my life, however I just, 2 years ago, built my 'Dream Shop'. That is a work in process that will continue indefinetly. It is 48' x 50' with minimum clearance of 9' under all dust ducts. A portion [20 x 48] has clear height of over 30'. Exhaust system, dust system, hi-bay lighting, air system, and overhead electrical drops are included. Three air hose reels and three 110v reels are mounted at 9' above the floor.

Current project is the reconstruction of a 1917 International [Harvester] model H truck. I am within 20 hours of all wood work completion. All wood is Red Oak. Then I will start on the clear finish.

I am an 'Urban Forest Lumber' user. I have a generous supply of claro walnut, black locust, redwood, aspen, madrone, cork oak, orange, pistacio, & manazanita lumber. All have been harvested locally. Also a few manzanita, walnut, and manzanita burls. All wood were found in standing position. I have logged, sawn, stacked, dried, trimed, and otherwise processed these woods. Their use has not determined.

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
