Location: Arnolds Park, IA

I'm 56 years young, have Multiple Sclerosis and am legally blind. I have a decent wood shop built in "my half" the garage (since I obviously don't drive!). I also build custom fishing rods and restore antique rods, both as a hobby and a business. I love woodworking and fishing and my wife tells people I can be usually found either in the shop or on (or in) the water.

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
