Location: London, Ontario, Canada

I am retired from Bell where I was a systems analyst. I worked on network design and operations. Now, on most days you will find me in the workshop. I do a wide variety of wood work but I spend most of my time wood turning. I make salad bowls and artsy/decor pieces for a local gallery that sells my work. I have also created a line of cremation urns for a local crematorium.
I have had a love affair with wood since I was a youngster playing in my grandfather’s work shop where he repaired antique furniture. The earliest wood turning experience that I can remember is when I may have been seven or eight years old. I was standing on a wooden pop crate in front of my grandfather’s lathe. My grandfather was standing directly behind me, his arms wrapped around me from each side; with his hands on my hands he was teaching me how to use the various turning tools. In the days that followed, I abused many pieces of wood down to toothpicks; much to my grandfather’s amusement.
I am also a purveyor of wood on eBay. It is mostly burled and figured woods for the hobbyist and wood turner. I sell specialty stock for various craft persons including professional knife makers, gunsmiths, auto restoration, pen turners…. etc. You can find me on eBay as ‘thewoodguy1’

Hi there,
Welcome to LumberJocks… I joined the site myself just about 2 years ago and will give you fair warning, this site is VERY ADDICTIVE, VERY EDUCATIONAL, and VERY FUN…. so sit back, enjoy the ride and learn from the other LJ’s as they are a group of extremely talented people that are also very friendly…
I apologize for the late welcome but I am currently serving overseas and don’t have a lot of spare time on my hands.

Enjoy your time here on LJ and pass the word to any of your woodworking buddies about us…


-- New Project = New Tool... it's just the way it is, don't fight it... :)

Have your say...
