Location: Rogue River, OR

Making something dead into a living breathing useful implement for human use is rewarding as it is strange. You don't have to understand it to like it. And you use it without having to like it. Everyone has furniture, some of it just has more soul.

I use locally harvested wood (such as pallet wood and old logs I stumble upon) as well as locally bought wood to build tables, cabinets, and whatever I feel like. I use machines to do the major shaping, but try to do most of the joinery and final shaping by hand. Each piece has it's own unique vibe just as every piece of wood has a different personality. I find inspiration from patterns in nature, industry, and great woodworkers like James Krenov and Alan Peters. In the end, I want the wood I have chosen to sing loudly in harmony within the form of the piece I have created.

I'm 25 years old. I've been woodworking for a little over a year.

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

Hi there,
Welcome to LumberJocks… I joined the site myself just about 2 years ago and will give you fair warning, this site is VERY ADDICTIVE, VERY EDUCATIONAL, and VERY FUN…. so sit back, enjoy the ride and learn from the other LJ’s as they are a group of extremely talented people that are also very friendly…
I apologize for the late welcome but I am currently serving overseas and don’t have a lot of spare time on my hands.

Enjoy your time here on LJ and pass the word to any of your woodworking buddies about us…


-- New Project = New Tool... it's just the way it is, don't fight it... :)

Have your say...
