Location: Pollock Pines, CA

I was born, raised and have lived in California all my life, but have been fortunate enough through all those years to have had the opportunity to see and visit every state in the union. Such a beautiful country!!! Fortunately my second hobby is photography.
I worked for IBM for 35 years and retired in 2000 to Santa Rosa, Ca., just north of San Francisco.
That is where my woodworking "part time hobby of 35 years" started to take the wonderful turn to "full time hobby". I built up my shop equipment from a Shopsmith to a two car garage shop with much better equipment. After kind of finding my "niche" in what I wanted to make , my wife and I had the opportunity to move to the higher foothills, east of Sacramento, to Pollock Pines.
FINALLY, I was able to have a "REAL" woodshop !!!
I have started my business called "Majestic Eagle Woodworks". The name came from the fact that I am totally fascinated by the eagles I saw while in Alaska, their size, grace, power, and sheer "Majesty"........
I specialize mostly in custom Jewelry boxes, Tea boxes and Keepsake boxes. I also enjoy making custom Money clips, Hair sticks/forks and Humidors. Some of my past work can be seen not only here as a project but also at my flickr site gallery:

My work that is currently available can be purchase at:

Thank you and Enjoy !

Hello Max, bigdog117 & Scot, thanks so much for the great welcome .
I can’t believe that after all these years, I have just stumbled upon Lumberjocks. I guess it was meant to be!

What a great site and just tons of absolutely wonderful information and project ideas. I am sure I will be spending many hours enjoying and learning.

I will be updating my profile and info later today or tomorrow and will post then.

I have been an avid woodworker for over 40 years and plan on another 40 !!!!!

Wow, this is just plain ADDICTING !!!!!!!

I have been searching all around the site now for 6 hours and just cannot believe the wealth of information, the talent, and the great people out there willing to help and voice their opinion.

Being new to LJ’s, I plan on spending many more hours here, ( I should be in my woodshop ) , but I think the time will be well spent.

I have gotten tips on improving my jewelry boxes, tips on how to start a website, safety tips, etc…........
there is not end…........................

Loof forward to talking with many of you out there and hope to post a project or two in the next few days.
