Location: Diamond Lake, WA

Professional woodworker for over 10 years. Hobby for 35 years prior to that while I served in the US Coast Guard for 23 years. Tough to take woodworking equipment aboard ship. We are a husband and wife team focusing on design, construction and installation of cabinetry, furniture and fireplace mantles. We also make custom cedar signs and cribbage boards as gifts. We strive to make sure every client has a project that has been personalized just for them that they can say is theirs and theirs alone.

We do not have a product line. Everything is designed from the ground up specifically for the customer. Size, color, wood type, decorative touches, etc. are all done to make the project a one-of-a-kind for the customer.

Our shop is pretty well equipped including a CNC machine capable of cutting material 60" wide x 96" long. We use our machine to cut parts for other companies as well as cutting for all our cabinetry and some of our furniture projects.

We love living in the wild and enjoy hunting, fishing, camping and hiking. I love to ride my 4-wheeler (Momma not so much) around on my 50 acres located in northeast Washington state. As a past time I also love to build early period static sailing ships (square riggers).

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 just about 2 years 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…
I apologize for the late welcome but I am currently serving overseas and don’t have a lot of spare time on my hands.

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... :)
