”When I asked a few members for recommendations about who we should interview next, Hillbilly Shooter’s name kept coming up. I am so pleased that it did, because I am fascinated by his story. I think you are going to be as well!” http://lumberjocks.com/HillbillyShooter1. What is your inspiration story? Who did you watch, what was their hobby, and how did you get involved?

I am so pleased that y’all talked to me about the importance of the interviews to the community because I am loving getting to know our members. I think you will enjoy getting to know The Box Whisperer. Here is his story…. What is your inspiration story? Who did you watch, what was their hobby, and how did you get involved? My story started off very simply, although it was not pretty. Back in the day, I had a “contractor”. He was good, and most importantly he was honest. ...

The entire time I was reading this story, I was smiling from ear to ear. I want to share it with all of you now. What is your inspiration story? Who did you watch, what was their hobby, and how did you get involved? As a young boy I worked with my father and grandfather learning any and everything they would show me. My dad was brilliant with his hands and could fix almost anything. My grandfather used only hand tools and would get materials from his land. Everything including t...

With every interview I get more excited. I truly enjoy getting to know the people behind the user names. I think you are going to be fascinated by this one. I know I am! What is your inspiration story? Who did you watch, what was their hobby, and how did you get involved? I owe my love of woodworking to my sixth grade shop teacher.

”WOW! I simply don’t have the words to express how inspiring Sandra’s story is for me. I am so pleased she agreed to share it with us. Thank you, Sandra!” What is your inspiration story? Who did you watch, what was their hobby, and how did you get involved? When I was in the 9th grade, we were the first group of girls in that district to be ‘allowed’ to take shop. It was a huge deal, with permission slips signed, and a class separate from the boys. In the w...

”These interviews have come to mean so much to me. Each one is another piece of the puzzle that makes this community so amazing. I hope you enjoy BigRedKnothead’s story as much as I did…” 1. What is your inspiration story? Who did you watch, what was their hobby, and how did you get involved? Early on woodworking was an escape for me. My home life was pretty crummy throughout my formative years. To avoid the domestic chaos I found places where I felt safe. Co...

”What an honor is has been for me to be able to post these interviews. I think you’re going to enjoy this one!” What is your inspiration story? Who did you watch, what was their hobby, and how did you get involved? Who did I watch? Some guy named Roy Under-something-or-other. I don’t know if his show went anywhere, but I used to see him on PBS. He taught me that woodworking was all about taking your time, enjoying the feel of the wood and the smell of the shop, and...
