I retired from the Army after 26 years as a 1st Sgt thus the nick name, and went right back to work for the Army at Fort Riley as an Environmentalist. I am not a real experienced woodworker but I have done a little in the craft shops on bases around the world and I am learning every day. I am sure that there is a lot of knowledge to be gained from you all and I will be looking forward to your comments in the future. My wife built me a shop just 20X24 when we moved into the house we now have. I ran myself out of space in no time the next one will be bigger, I wonder if you can ever have one big enough. I am going to retire again and move back home to PA and spend a lot more time in the shop and at craft shows hopefully people will like my work.

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

Welcome aboard, Top!

From one old retired Army guy (back in ‘96) to another, Kansas isn’t so bad a place to be in. Course PA isn’t so bad a place to be FROM either, but not as good as New Jersey!

Enjoy the site and the great folks who populate it.

And thanks for YOUR service!

Welcome to Lumberjocks!!! Nice work on the projects they look great. I was just looking over the projects and saw the big red one and had to check it out. I was born and raised in Manhattan after my dad was stationed there and retired. It’s a great place and I miss it, have not been back for a couple years now. If you’re in to hunting and fishing it is the place to be.

Keep up the good work

Welcome. You have found the right place for woodworking. A great group of people willing to help. Looking forward to see your projects and comments. Work safe in the shop and don’t forget to use pushsticks.

Hi there,
Welcome to LumberJocks… I joined the site myself a few months 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…

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

Wisty

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

Have your say...
