I grew up around woodworking as my dad had a full shop in our basement. I spent a lot of time playing in his shop. I learned a lot about woodworking from watching my dad as a kid but it wasn't until a couple of years ago that I really started taking a big interest in woodworking.

I also took a huge interest in restoring old hand tools and learning how to use them. I cleaned and tuned one hand plane just for the heck of it and now its turned into a full time hobby for me.

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.

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…
