My name is Michael but you can call me Mikey (or M if you're really lazy). I'm fairly new to woodworking but have wanted to get into it for some time. My current woodworking aspirations are building Guitar Speaker Cabinets and Solid Body Guitars. One day I would love to get into Modern Furniture Design and Small Home Prefab.

I was first tempted by the thought of woodworking when I heard that Jesus was a carpenter. I later saw a violin and cello up close for the first time and wanted to get into woodworking even more but it wasn't until I saw the Goetz Sofa by Herman Miller at age of 17 that I knew I would one day have to design things that were made of wood. Now 12 years (after seeing the Goetz) and 4 kids later I am starting to invest into that dream.

Studied Woodworking, Cabinet Making, Millwork & Furniture Making under Chris Gochnour (Fine Woodworking Magazine) & Chad Fail (SLCC, UT).

Hi there,
Welcome to LumberJocks… I joined the site myself a few months ago and will give you fair warning, this site is VERY ADDICTIVE, VERY EDUCATIONAL, and VERY FUN…. so sit back, enjoy the ride and learn from the other LJ’s as they are a group of extremely talented people that are also very friendly…

Enjoy your time here on LJ and pass the word to any of your woodworking buddies about us…


-- New Project = New Tool... it's just the way it is, don't fight it... :)

Have your say...
