i dove head first into woodworking with little training, what i learned from my father, no great tool collection, and one simple goal: to build furniture that i need. i have used the internet mostly to learn different technique and network with other people building similar pieces. there is an absolute plethora of information available out on these inter-tubes!

at heart i am truly a hacker, but lately computers have begun to bore me, don't get me wrong i could never turn away from my loved GNU/Linux and all the great FREE softwares i rely on every day. i have altered my life in such a way to return to my artists roots, and i am ever so happy now.

in my short woodworking careerer i have built workbenches, desks, coffee tables, end tables, entertainment centers, chairs, tables, stools, and a slew of workshop stuff. on my website i have created a woodworking section which contains photos of my adventures in woodworking!

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
