I have only been here for a few days and already feel at home due to the warm welcome that I received from several of LJ’s members.
I own a small shop in southern lower Michigan, building everything from curios to kitchens with the main focus on designing and building furniture. I enjoy working with a large variety of hardwoods and exotics and feel very fortunate to have a very large lumber mill close by.( sometimes to close)
I started teaching woodworking classes about 4 years ago. Teaching is rewarding and challenging and I hope to continue to expand the classes that are offered.
This is my favorites time of year because I can work with all the doors and windows open. On the flip side, by mid-winter my 1500 sq ft shop can start to feel like working in a shoe box.
The warm weather makes it hard to concentrate on work and not day dream about all the great fishing and camping that we have here in Michigan.
