Location: Metro Detroit area (Sterling Hts.)

Somehow during my creation I never received the "woodworker" gene. I actually struggle to mate to pieces of wood at a 90 degree angle! I am primarily a decoy carver, I carve gunning style decoys that are used for hunting. I can get away with giving a decoy for a gift, but it ends there, so I took up spoon carving as something different to rejuvenate my imagination, plus they make great gifts in lieu of a dumb decoy!

My background is graphic design, I currently sell advertising. I also have a business that designs and manufactures custom Branding Irons for woodworkers. I am an advertiser on this forum.

You can contact me off my site:

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
