By day I'm a university professor. In my "spare time", I like to woodwork and play the ukulele. My wife and I have three children and four grandchildren.

Most of my woodworking up to now has been building musical instruments. I've built a mountain dulcimer, a hammered dulcimer, a ukulele (from a kit), and numerous pickin' sticks. The pickin' sticks are basically travel mtn dulcimers; I built and sold online about 15 of them.

My next woodworking goals are some simple furniture pieces for my wife (bedside tables) and some ukuleles from scratch rather than from a kit.

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

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…


-- New Project = New Tool... it's just the way it is, don't fight it... :)

Have your say...
