Location: Eastpointe, Mi.

hobbyist woodworker but passionate about it, mill my own lumber with a Granberg mill and air dry it. Wood turner,scroller, flat worker. With my mill i acquire a lot of lumber and of species that sometimes are not available to purchase, for me milling lumber is as much fun as working the wood. there is something very rewarding about the process of milling wood that might have become firewood or landfill and completing a project from tree to end of project. i believe that wood is a precious commodity and should not be wasted or exploited but cherished, revered, and respected, it is a beautiful gift of nature and god. i currently work in a basement shop and i love it, sure i would like to have a stand alone shop, who wouldn't, but I'm cool in the summer and warm in the winter, close to the bathroom and coffee pot, lol. worked wood in high school and then got away from it for a few years for marriage, children, business, etc. started again years ago and realized what i was missing, guess I'm a born again woodworker lol. will try to get some pictures of my work and milling posted, without wood there is not any woodworking 1-1-14 time for a little update I guess. I have also ventured into a little metal working. I have set up one small corner of my basement shop for this and I have a metal lathe and a milling machine there. I have been making and selling high quality turning tools for wood turners. They are carbide insert and work very well. I first started making these tools for myself, then others started asking for them, and now I have fun making and selling them to others. My shop is still my happy place.
Update 6-18-17 Moved, new house and new shop. The shops are now separated, half the basement for the wood shop, and about half for the machine/metal shop.
Moving a shop and all the heavy equipment was not fun. Then setting up shop again in a new place that had no power and nothing in the way of shop needs. The good thing is the new shop is way better than the old. I kept the things I liked about the old shop and discarded the things I didn't like. But I hope I never have to move again!
