Location: Los Angeles, CA

I grew up the son of a tradesman. Several builders, that my Dad worked for, sent their clients to our family paint/wall covering/floor covering store to pick out their colors for Formica counter tops and linoleum/vinyl sheet flooring. Dad and Grampa made Formica counter tops and Dad (during the summers my brother and I helped) would go out and install the flooring and counter tops. I saw all the trades working together on a large number of job sites. Some how I always gravitated to the electricians. In High school I met the Electronics teacher and the rest is history as they say. I have enjoyed a great career in the electronics industry and it has afforded me the opportunity to buy a large number of useful tools used to remodel several houses and in the last few years actually tackle wood working. My skill have steadily increased - especially with encouragement from a loving wife - wife says, hunny can you make this - I replay, ah, yes, but I need this new tool to do this particular operation, so in many ways she has been as instrumental in growing my skills as I have. I look forward now to the time where I will have shop space, and her connected sewing room, that afford me the opportunity to spread out and do larger projects - that day is coming soon here.

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
