Location: Sarnia, Ontario. Canada

I live in Southwestern Ontario, Canada.
I enjoy building things, be it for my shop, family, or friends.
I have gained a lot of knowlegde from some very talented people on LJ's, and still get amazed almost daily at the skills that are out here.

My greatest woodworking experience to date, is being able to meet Hal Taylor and spend time working with him in his shop in Hartwood Virginia, learning to build his beautiful rocking chairs.

As times goes by, I hope my skills as a woodworker can continue to grow with me.

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
