I love my woodworking and have done it for many years. Bandsaw boxes, scroll saw projects are my favorite, although I've done everything from outdoor furniture, including a set of bleachers for my sand volleyball court to fine jewelry.........a jack of all trades. Other interests include kayaking, hiking, biking, photography.......and when it's cold outside I resort to embroidery on cards and other card making, crochet. My woodshop isn't heated, so I use it less in the winter. I'm also a former Marine......Semper Fi!

Welcome to our wonderful community, I’m sure you will find that it is a great place to hang out. Word of warning though. Lumberjocks has been known to become addictive.
Have fun,

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
