I have been in woodworking most of my life. I grew up learning the trade from my father. I served in the Marines from '85-'89. Got out of the habit of woodworking for 15 years. When I married my second wife 12 years ago, I got back into it. I have a small shop in the front room of a 16X80 mobile home. I just started carving in 2010. Carrying on the legacy of my Grandmother, who began carving in her 80's

I make games, birdhouses, cars and trucks, and other misc. stuff.

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
