I've loved woodworking from the time I was a little kid growing up in my folk's upholstery shop. I've owned 5 houses and the shop was always the main priority in whether or not we buy the house. Other than junior high and high school shop I haven't had much formal training. I think I've learned the same way most of us have, through TV and magazines. However, in the past 10 years I've belonged to a local Woodworker's Guild. I've learned tons of stuff from them and am very involved with the organization. For most of my career I've been a software developer. In 2001 they offered me an early retirement and now supplement the pension with a woodworking business. I've been monitoring this site for a few weeks and can't wait to jump in and get involved.

See you around,

-- Cal Noguchi

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 to Lumber Jocks! This is a great place to get – or give – advice about woodworking on the forums and the project posts are a wonderful source of new ideas. I look forward to seeing your projects and posts.

To get the most feedback on your projects, it’s best to only post 1 or 2 at a time. This way you will get feedback over several days and from a wide variety of members.

Please enjoy your membership.

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
