I am new to woodworking, live on 40 acres in central oregon up a beautiful valley 12.5 miles east of Prineville. I have always loved Juniper wood but, never in my wildest dreams ever thought I would find myself making lamps, coffee tables, fireplace mantels, etc. I make a lot of mistakes but, am learning as well.

I am open to any and all advice along this journey. I am a father of 4, grandfather of 10 and husband of 36+yrs.
