I'm retired from the Air Force after 28 years and enjoy building shadow boxes for retirees. I got my start in 1999 after helping a friend with a couple shadow boxes one weekend. I eventually purchased my own tools and branched out on my own. The Air Force moved me twice before I finally settled here in Mississippi. After seeing several of my projects a friend recommended I open an Etsy store. I took her advice and in the 12+ years since I opened the store I've sold more than 400 shadow boxes all around the globe to include Germany, The Netherlands, Great Britain, Japan, Wake Island, and nearly every state in the union. While I've been doing this for 20+ years, I'm always open to constructive critiques.

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
