Website:

I am a hobbyist woodworker as an escape from the ephemeral world of software development. And the solitude of the basement shop also serves as an escape from the far less ephemeral world of two rambunctious sons.

My main interest is in furniture, but in practice, I make what furniture I can between home improvement and repair projects. Most of what I make is for myself, my family and a few friends. Although, thoughts of selling a few pieces here and there to get the next big tool are always with me.

My particular interest is on period furniture covers many eras from the late Medieval period forward to the Arts & Crafts period. When I am not in the shop, I am probably reading and pouring over books and illustrations planning my next project.

Welcome to LumberJocks. Glad to have you aboard.

Wayne:

We are planning a picnic at Lee Jesbergers shop / home on Sept 29, 2007 at 10:00 Look at Lee’s projects and you will be impressed with the quality of his work. I think it will be a privilege to spend some time with him.

I posted a blog on the picnic.

We’d like to have you come.

I just commented on your arts & crafts table and checked out your homesite. I can see the medieval influence in your piece. You will get along very well in arts & crafts furniture building as it reflects everything from that medieval to the oriental. It gives an original builder a lot of leeway to find his style and settle into it comfortably, at the same time producing quality, timeless furniture. As always, bbqKing
