Location: Port Orchard, WA

Retired from the DOD in 2007 as a Quality Assurance Specialist. Diagnosed with cancer 11 days after retirement. A kind of 'Welcome to Retirement' notice. Now a cancer survivor and participant in the "Relay For Life" event each year. Veteran of Viet Nam (USN) and many Alaska Fishery Patrols (USCG). Having spent so much time in San Diego (work related), I must confess that I love it there. Now I spend my time trying to see what I can make in my woodshop. Not afraid to admit that I am inspired by what others make and sometimes try to replacate.

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…

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
