Location: Austin, TX

I work as a physicist/engineer for a semiconductor company making acoustic signal processing microchips. I have been married to my wife for about 10 years and we have three little kids. I have been woodworking since I was 8, but had a break for several years while in school.

My preferred projects are guitars and anything guitar related, though I also dig furniture and jewelry boxes.

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…
