Location: Greencastle, Indiana

I live in a little town just outside of Indianapolis. All my children are raised and gone. I have always wanted to put up a small workshop so I can park my car in the garage where it belongs! I like to make and design Arts and Crafts projects. I do not sell anything, I make things to give away as gifts. If I start making them for a stipen, then it becomes work and I just want to keep it a hobby. There is so much satisfaction in giving a gift from the heart rather then from the store!

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 little over a year 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…

Great philosophy—agree about not making it for the “stipen”—at least at this stage in my life. Really enjoy giving a loved one something that I’ve made. Guess I’m jealous of the professional woodworkers and the fact that the “chose well” in life!
