Location: HOME: Alajuela, Costa Rica LIVE: Belem do Para, Brasil

I am a forester, did my engineering in Costa Rica and had a chance also to study in Moscow, Idaho and British Columbia. I trully believe on forest management and its sustainable use, loves to work on producing lumber.
I got into woodworking about 30 years ago (around 1986) that I purchased an used 10" Craftsman radial arm saw (that i still have and have never done any repair on it) with the years has been doing more and more and having more fun everytime. My home and main workshop is in Costa Rica, but have been moving to different countries in Central and South America for work purposes. Currently living in Belem do Para, Brasil, enjoying the availability of high quality lumber species

Welcome to Lumberjocks! I like your open air shop. I have a friend who wants to move to Costa Rica. If he ever does, I’ll send him to you for some authentic furniture.
