Location: St Augustine Florida

I'm a retired Auto worker originally from Massachusetts and now living in St Augustine FL.

My first woodworking experience was when I attended Norwood High School back in the 60's. Soon after I learned how to use some of the tool's in the school shop I was hooked on woodworking. I just wanted to stay in the shop and skip all the other classes, well they wouldn't let me do that... LOL!

I've tried my hand at many woodworking projects from cabinets to making gazebo's, bedroom suit, tables and many other projects over the years. Some of which are posted here on LJ's.

Some of the tools I have are a Ridgid 10" table saw, 13" Ridgid thickness planer , Hitachi 8 1/4" chop saw, Grizzly 14" band saw, Delta 6" joiner planer, Delta drill press , Triton 2 1/4 HP router, 2 Craftsman 1/4 " routers, 1 Porter Cable 2 1/4 HP router, 1 Ridgid 1 HP router. Ridgid oscillating sander. I built a Horizontal Mortise slot machine using plans. I have many other hand tool. My 2 car garage is my work shop it's a bit too small but I manage to get things done. I'm the type of guy that can't wait to get my project finished once I get started, no procrastination going on with me whatsoever!

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.

God Bless

I just added a “buddy Icon” pic of a gazebo I built back in 88. It’s at an old house we moved from years ago. Leaving the Gazebo and my nice large shop behind was a hard thing to do. Even after all these years that have passed I still miss the old place. It’s one of those thing in ones life that you wish you could go back to.
Thank you all for the warm greetings. I’m so glad I found Lumberjocks.
