Location: Saint Charles, Missouri

I am a physician (call me Alex) who has gotten into this expensive hobby because of my wife. Building strechers and frames for her art work has started my passion for woodworking. I can really blame her for the hundreds of dollars I have spent at Rockler, Woodcraft, WoodnShop and other stores because of her. Her art work is on the internet at Without her I would never have found the joy of woodworking. I want to thank a few people who have really helped with direct or indirect encouragement: St. Louis Woodworker's Guild, St. Louis Wood Turners, The WoodWhisperer's podcasts, Red Headed Merganser, and Ken Schmidt. Thanks guys

Welcome to the center of the woodworking universe.
Give us a name to call you other than “Dr.”
That is so generic. <g>

There is a great depth of knowledge here so don’t be afraid to ask the odd questiion and, of course, we all love seeing others projects.

Welcome to the LumberJocks, Doc!

Hey, don’t forget to post your clock contest project from last year’s “Think Small Win Big” contest through Woodcraft Magazine. It made it onto the cover, so that might just qualify you for Debbie’s Autograph thing!
