Location: Overland Park, KS

I am first a husband of an amazing wife and a father of two awesome kids. By day I am a Construction Manager. After those two things, I am an avid period furnituremaker.

My Dad Ben Hobbs is a professional period furnituremaker in North Carolina, and I learned from him by working with him growing up. With the need for furniture for my daughter's room a few years ago, I picked up woodworking again a few years ago. I enjoy building Queen Anne and Chippendale style furniture and collecting books related to period furniture. I like to take on new challenges year by year to stretch my skills, and to learn from those who are masters in the craft like my father.

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
