Location: Pittsford, NY

I enjoy woodworking, for fun and refreshment. A retired farmer & professor, I am a husband, father, grandfather, neighbor & community volunteer. Lately, I've developed what is, for me at least, a whimsical & decorative way of using up scrap & found woods & of being green. At the same time. some of the items are useful, attractive, tactile & symbolic -- and they are ways of using up scrap & found woods & of being green at the same time. It keeps me interested & seems to please lots of other folks.

I’m a retired farmer & professor who enjoys making whimsical objects of scrap wood. Some of them useful & some are decorative. I am also a husband, father, grandfather & neighbor; I do community volunteering; and I sometimes help in & around the house. PATCHWOODS is the name my wife gave to my current woodworking projects. My website displays a sampling of them. I will appreciate comments & helpful suggestions. Hopefully, I’ll post a few photographs here within a short time.

Welcome to LJs.
Geeze, the Google map you posted makes it look like you’re REALLY out in the BOONIES. I think I had to click the “back out” button 2 or 3 times before it even showed you’re in Canada LOL

Thanks for the comments. I erred in locating us in lake country, Canada, but it’s fixed now. I think I’m getting the hang of this great site. It’s potential is simply phenomenal!
