Who Am I
Hey guys. I'm John P. Evans and I'm the founder/owner of Justwood.it. I am a professional woodworking enthusiast and member of the AWI (Architectural Woodwork Institute). I was born in 1958 in Gilbert, AZ. As a child, I was able to learn the art of woodworking with my grandfather, who taught me everything he knew. Together we produced some really good looking pieces of furniture. Some of the most beautiful projects still remain in my house, over 40 years later.
I am really happy to work with wood every single day for over 43 years now. I have been privileged to consider woodworking my long life business, which means that I am still able to live off of my woodworking knowledge. Nowadays I am building every kind of woodworking furniture for my clients.
I started this website to share my passion for woodworking - offering free plans and advice to aspiring craftsman. This website is some kind of addition to my long list of hobbies. I am lucky to have enough free time in my old years now and can afford to use this website as some kind of a database for my woodworking plans. In the past decades, I have gained such a huge amount of plans in this field and it would be a shame if it would be lost one day. That's why I decided to create this website with the help of my son, who certainly knows much more about this *internet* than I do.
This site serves as a "journal" as well as a "giveaway" for all the plans and knowledge I've amassed throughout my life. I am trying to put as much useful woodworking plans on this website as I can. I really hope you, as my fellow woodworking friend, will gain a lot of helpful tips & tricks, guides & plans off of my website.
Also, if you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact me. I will do my best to answer your questions as fast as possible!
