Location: Deming, NM

I got into woodworking by building large wooden telescopes in 1983. A couple of hundred telescopes later am still at it. Along the way, learned woodworking and cabinetmaking. House and shop are full of homemade projects, as well as the observatory which holds the second largest amateur telescope in the USA.

My old 40x60' shop was featured in both the 2007 and 2010 America's Best Home Workshops. We recently moved to NM, and having a ball getting the new shop organized again.

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.

How about letting us see your shop.

God Bless

Hi there,
Welcome to LumberJocks… I joined the site myself a few months 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…

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

Thanks for the nice comments, guys! Yes, the shop has air, heat, and a bathroom. We all started in a tiny shop – mine was 1/2 of a one-car garage. I’ve been in this one since ‘98, and highly recommend to all my friends, stop dreaming and go do it. Life is short, so enjoy it best you can! You see back yard shops like mine in suburbs all over the country, so mine is not as rare as you think. By the way, for anyone who lives in the area, always love visitors!
