Part time woodworking for fun and profit. Love working with reclaimed materials and upcycling. Also enjoy building affordable caskets, coffins, and urns for those looking for lower cost and alternative funeral options.

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
