Location: Spokane Valley, WA

I've been a wood worker most of my life - basically the "whatever was needed and we can't afford to buy it" type. In 1997, I was replacing all the joists in our enclosed deck when my wife decided I was ripe for a mid-life crisis. Rather than let me select my own, she assigned me woodworking – “Almost as much fun as a sports car and a lot safer than another woman!”

Today I have a separate building, 20' x 30', as my shop. It consists of two rooms, 10' x 20' (the store room) and 20" x 20' (the wood shop).

I specialize in whatever my wife wants at the present time - cabinets, furniture, toys, home improvements, etc. I also made gifts for family and friends.

I'm teaching my second class at Woodcraft on making small desk clocks and pocket watches this April.

I am a member of the American Association of Woodturners and its local chapter, the Inland Northwest Wood Turners.

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
