Location: Modesto, Ca.

I coming back to wood work after long journey through life. My father was a custom cabinet maker, for mansions in the Bay Area, near San Francisco. At about 8 I started doing the finish work on his cabinets.
After school I sculptured and turned plastics on the lathe for 5 years.
Spent about 25 years in construction on highrise building, doing glass work. I should have bought shares in Zee Medical supplies, best bandaides made. Then I fell. Took my early retirement.
I learned to be a medical hypnotherapist, so I work with people with pain, veterans with PTSD, fears, strokes, esentially anyone the doctors say they can't help anymore. Then I step in and I have a very high success rate. Anyway I live in other people's stuff, all the time. I like helping people, but even I need a place of peace.......woodworking.
So I'm coming back to an old love of mine.
I'll start posting projects soon, and I'll try to make some of them interesting.
I go by Steven (my middle name) it sounds more professional as a Medical Hypnotherapist, but I've been called Rocky since I was born, by friends.

Good question about the clappers. I first fabricated a wooden clapper on a copper wire held with a screw eye which was more authentic but didn’t really sound that pleasant so I attached a small Jingle bell and it sounds surprisingly nice. I appreciate the look and kind words

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
