Location: Carthage, NY

I'm originally from Newport, KY but had been in the Army for almost 24 years and retired in Carthage, NY near Fort Drum. I've been woodworking as a hobby for about 7 years or so. It seems every time I searched for reviews or "how to" on something, this website kept coming up and I got a lot of great info from the folks on here so I figured I would join and share a few things that may help out someone else new to this as well as taking advantage of all the shared knowledge on here.
Edit 12 May 2011: I am now a professional woodworker working in a five man (counting me) custom woodworking shop that has been in business for nearly 30 years.

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.

Take of your boots and set awhile. Looking at your sign single corp jumps out at me. Its a little strange to actually think about settling in and looking ahead. I did after 27 but that got a little derailed when my wife decided she wanted to go home. 5 winters up north and NYS property and we’re headed back to KY, just outside Mount Sterling. Great thing is LJ’s go with you any where you go. Any way welcome to the family and if no ones told you its addictive.
