Location: Cedar Hill, Missouri

I found a passion for woodturning at the age of 14 in shop class. My first turning was a segmented lamp which won first place in our school art show. My parents were very supportive and bought me my first wood lathe and been hooked ever since. I tried my hand at different types of wood working but couldn't cut a straight line to save my life. so I went back to my first passion and been turning wood ever since.

I'm a charter member and former vise president of Show-Me Wood turners Club. Member of the St. Louis wood turners, and penturners. org

Once your sucked in the woodturning vortex there is no way out. So run, save yourself, its to late for me.

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…

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
