Location: Chapel Hill, NC

I recently retired and my decades -long furnituremaking avocation has now become my primary interest. I have a small shop (two car garage size) that limits the scale of my projects projects to a degree. With each project through the years I have set a challenge for myself by incorporating a new design, a new material, a new technique, or a combination of these, and this has been my way of learning. In addition I have taken workshops with Michael Fortune, Jeff Jewitt, Teri Masachi, and Roseanne Somerson, and later this year will take a workshop with Paul Schurch.

I hope to make furniture on a commission basis since our home cannot accommodate any more furniture!

More to follow later.

Welcome. You have found the right place for woodworking. A great group of people willing to help. Looking forward to see your projects and comments. Work safe in the shop and don’t forget to use pushsticks.

Beautiful doors. Exquisite handles.
Care to share your supplier’s particulars? I get down to Tucson regularly.

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

Hi there,
Welcome to LumberJocks… I joined the site myself just about 2 years ago and will give you fair warning, this site is VERY ADDICTIVE, VERY EDUCATIONAL, and VERY FUN…. so sit back, enjoy the ride and learn from the other LJ’s as they are a group of extremely talented people that are also very friendly…
I apologize for the late welcome but I am currently serving overseas and don’t have a lot of spare time on my hands.

Enjoy your time here on LJ and pass the word to any of your woodworking buddies about us…
