Location: Upland,California

I am a father of 3 children and a Teamster for 24 years a shop steward for 4 years. married to my high school girlfriend for 22 years. love God Love our country and proud of my brother who has retired from the marines after 3 tours in Iraq and serving 25 years in the core. I have been tinkering around with wood for about 15 years but for the last 5 years I stared to get more focused about the craft. I am trying to inspire my sons to be wood workers like there dad, so far it is working very well with my boys, life is great.

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
