In my day job I'm an aerospace engineer specializing in composite aircraft structure design, so it's not a stretch for me to work with nature's original composite material (wood) when I want to blow off steam in my spare time.

Since 2011 I've been making sawdust in my basement shop, starting with tables for my most frequent customer - my wife - then progressing into cutting boards, boxes, cutting boards, countertops and cutting boards. It seems like I make a lot of cutting boards.

I've just started up an Etsy store (see my website link) to sell some of my work since I've been having a good level of success selling cutting boards locally.

Welcome to LJ’s. I joined not long ago and found that it is a treasure trove. A showcase of projects, reviews, a place to present questions, and much more. Explore the site; you’ll come back to it every day as I do. It’s gets addictive.
