I run the wood shop at the Walter Reed Army Medical Center's Arts & Crafts Center in Silver Spring, MD. My father is a custom woodworker and cabinet maker and I grew up in his shop. I’ve always enjoyed playing around, and now I get to hone my techniques and skills and teach at the same time.

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
