Location: Wilmington, Ohio

I have had a varied life so far, with many ups and downs.

I started out as a professional grower back in the 70's working in
large wholesale greenhouses in Cleveland and Louisville. After
my daughter Tracy was born, I decided to moved back to
Wilmington when she was old enough to go to school. Kentucky
schools were not that great.

I decided to leave the greenhouse business behind and go into
woodworking or 'whatever'. I just didn't know what that would
be. Lucky for me a woodworking opportunity came along and I
became shop foreman of a small doormaking shop. That lasted
about 8 years. Then our main customer went bankrupt and
I found myself out of work again.

I renovated old victorian porches for a while and then took a job
in a factory-just for the benefits. That temporary job has lasted
18 years!!

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
