Location: Haskins, OH

Jim is a full time Lutheran pastor at St. Paul Lutheran Church in Haskins, Ohio. When Jim isn't being a pastor he is doing woodworking in his shop. Jim has a history of enjoying woodworking in its many forms and especially appreciating hand tools and their use. His projects include completing a great variety of woodcarving projects, making foot powered woodworking machinery and hand tools, and making Shaker and Country style furniture. Since 2007, Jim has taken classes with Mike Dunbar at the Windsor Institute and after taking six classes there is now hooked on making Windsor chairs in his spare time. See Jim's blog at Jim and his wife Barb have occasionally volunteered as re-enactors in period clothing at 18th century historic sites, and most recently they offered demonstrations at the Reconstructed Fort Meigs Memorial Site in Perrysburg, OH, for the 200th anniversary of the British attack in 1813. Jim demonstrates turning Windsor chair legs on a spring pole lathe. One of Jim's recent commissions was to provide Shaker furniture for a mid 1800's cabin at the Wood County Historical Museum site in Bowling Green, Ohio.
