Location: Marysville Ohio

Here is my Bio from my website. more than youll ever want to know. Jim and his wife Deborah live in a rural area of Marysville Ohio. After 20 years in the trucking industry Jim with the support of Deborah started to build the woodshop and recently opened the doors to his business. Although it’s a small shop at 1000 sq ft Jim says it is more than enough for a one man operation. The shop conveniently sits next to the house overlooking his garden and fruit trees. Even though being self employed takes a lot of personal motivation and long hours Jim says Working out of the home is great I can start my day in the shop or garden. Jim interests beyond woodworking include gardening, photography, bee keeping, camping and travel
Jim has had a life long interest in woodworking and wanted to build more than cabinets so he attended the University of Rio Grande’s Fine Woodworking Program in 1997. Jim’s fundamental knowledge of woodworking came from studying under the instruction of master cabinetmaker Lonnie Bird. Jim’s education in furniture styles and construction details of traditional American cabinetmakers allows him to properly design and build beautiful furniture that will last generations. Jim completed his formal education by designing his own degree program at Sinclair College in Dayton Ohio. Jim graduated with a degree in furniture design and Architectural CAD. Jim has honed his skills in woodworking through years of practice and patience in the shop.
Jim uses a combination of traditional hand tools and woodworking machines to make the finest quality furniture possible. No mass production or automation.

Welcome to Lumber Jocks! This is a great place to get – or give – advice about woodworking on the forums and the project posts are a wonderful source of new ideas. I look forward to seeing your projects and posts.

To get the most feedback on your projects, it’s best to only post 1 or 2 at a time. This way you will get feedback over several days and from a wide variety of members.

The best way to find out who is near you is to post to the forum and ask the question. Go to My Lumber Jocks in the upper right corner of this page click on it and then click New Forum Topic and follow instructions from there.

I have also tried using the search function by entering your state but that yields a lot of results, and mostly not what you want. For members near you that have posted a workshop you can get a handy map of them by going to workshop and click on show all.

Please enjoy your membership.

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 a few months 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…

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