Retired wood boatbuilder. Hobby furniture maker. I love to think outside the box and I love to do things I've never tried before. Almost every project I start involves design as you go flexibility and at least a couple of things that I hope I can accomplish but that I'm not sure I can. I try to use local hardwoods when I can rather than commercial "store bought" material. I like that it gives a feeling of heritage to the piece.

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

Hey Shipwright! Just checked out your projects. You do good work man! To be expected from a wooden boatbuilder. ;^)

Welcome to this amazing site!

I’d be interested to know where you built boats and what.
