Location: Chandler, AZ

I'm 52, married 30 years with 2 grown kids. I started woodworking a few years ago. I used to fly planes and gliders for fun but my wife prefers me to do woodworking because she gets something out of it (also, she's afraid to fly).

Woodworking is my hobby not profession. It helps relieve the stress of my job. I am an equipment maintenance supervisor. I'm responsible for keeping all the production equipment up and running at a company that manufactures circuit boards.

Hi there,
Welcome to LumberJocks… I joined the site myself almost a year 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
