Location: cold creek, nevada, usa

After retiring from a career in Juvenile Court Services I decided to put more time into expanding my knowledge and practical experience in woodworking, a longtime hobby. After years practice and practical experience I decided to open Cold Creek Woodworks. A one-man shop located in the small mtn community of Cold Creek, NV. 50 miles outside Las Vegas in the Spring Mtn. National Recreation area. I enjoy the creative process of designing and producing a wide variety of projects. My shop is in a separate building adjacent to the house. At 6200 feet elevation I get four seasons so I heat with a wood stove in the winter. Being off the grid, we are solar powered with generator backup. Its hard to beat the setup: beautiful mtn. surroundings, daily visits by wild mustangs and elk, life in a very small quiet community of friendly neighbors.............

I very much appreciate the Lumberjocks website. Its members freely share their talents and how-to information. What a fine educational forum. Many thanks to all the many accomplished artists/craftsmen worldwide who share and participate in the fine art of woodworking.
