Website:

I became interested in Woodworking by accident. I went to a Vocational School after i returned from service in 1972. I signed up for classes in Housebuilding but instead the instructor had the class building Cabinets, Tables, Shelves, etc; to replace cheaper ones that came already installled in the mobile homes.

So instead of learning how to build houses I learned how to build Cabinets. And since then i was hooked. Even though i didn't get a chance to actually use any of the skills until about 7 yrs ago. It has always been a passion with me to own my own little shop. I recently built a small one 20'x24' but i've already done a few projects.

Still working a 9-5 so i don't get to spend to much time out there yet. I have some pics on facebook and as soon as i get a chance i'm going to place them here where there is a better appreciation for them. just found this site and I'm really excited to become a part of it.
Oh, the nickname came from My 6 grandboys + my 1 son + myself=8boys no granddaughters

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 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
