Location: Bend, Oregon

Studied Architecture in 1956. Graduated in Art and Graphic Design in 1965.
Worked many years in graphic and exhibit design, project management, home remodeling, and furniture design and building.

For the past few years I have been creating furniture, cabinets, lamps, and crafts using wood from pallets and skids plus found and recycled wood.
Along the way, I have been experimenting with color stains and finishing.

My present interests include painting and sculpture as well as combining them.
I like the process of exploring new ideas and methods.

"Imperfect is more interesting"

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

Hi there,
Welcome to LumberJocks… I joined the site myself just about 2 years 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…
I apologize for the late welcome but I am currently serving overseas and don’t have a lot of spare time on my hands.

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