I just signed on to Lumberjocks and am looking forward to using the site and meeting other woodworkers. If anyone wants to see what I do, you can go to my website- I’d appreciate any comments about my work or the site itself- good or bad. (Be gentle)

with creations like that – I can’t see that you’ll need to worry about people not being gentle. Magnificent pieces!

I hope you will post some pieces on here and give us a little bit of history about the piece ..

Beautiful woodwork….stunning in fact…..I don’t think the site reflects the quality of it though. It’s functional but not much elegance. I’m being gentle….:). I notice you are moving to Seattle…check craigslist for some aspiring web designers to give your site some polish.

Hi Alan.

I checked out your site a couple weeks ago, when Ms. Debbie posted something about the house and shop for sale.

Beautiful work, very artistic!

There was a pre-eminent Art Deco designer named Jacques-Emile Ruhlmann. He designed work at the turn of the twentieth century that was stellar. I would put what you have done up against his work anyday. Plus he cheated, employing a stable of woodworkers to fulfill his designs. Alan, you seriously rock.
