Location: Port Townsend, Washington

I've been doing woodworking for years now. I got my start building decks and covered patios, from there I moved onto trim carpentry, framed houses and built custom doors. I graduated from the Northwest School of Wooden Boat Building in 2008, where I learned to build and repair traditional wooden boats. We currently live on the Puget Sound in Washington state where I am working as a Shipwright, and I am the lead boat builder for a not-for-profit organization teaching local high school students how to build boats.

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

Ahh… a jack after me own heart…

I’m deep in the heart of the Texas hill country, and our high school is “The Pirates.” Go figure. I’ve been around boats longer than I’ve been a woodworker (which means, right from the beginning.) You’re living out my dream with your boatbuilding adventures! So glad to have you aboard! Mind the rum, Skipper gets cranky when you’ve a dram too many!
