Amateur part time woodworker building a home one piece of furniture at a time. Remodel houses and write websites on the side to pay for my habit. I might end up buying and remodeling a bungalow on Alameda or just sailing off into the Pacific with all of my stuff in storage. For now, I'm just happy making sawdust.

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

Thanks guys! I’m currently out in Livermore, CA remodeling a house for a friend and doing woodworking on the side. One possible option is buying a bungalow in Alameda and remodeling it. I figure if we move a bunch of A&C furniture in, it’ll already look great. If we do the bungalow thing, we’ll be renting it while we’re out sailing, so we don’t want to overdo the remodel. We’re planning on circumnavigating on a 42 footer, starting in a few years. As usual, we’ll buy a boat that needs some TLC. Until then, it’s sawdust time!
