Hello everyone. Welcome.

I have been woodworking since 1998. I started shortly after I was married because I wanted to be more of a do-it-yourselfer around the house. That turned into a real hobby. I began making all kinds of things. Especially around Christmas time. Unfortunately, I have given most of my
projects away as presents and didn't take pictures of them beforehand.

I guess that means I need to make more projects. :)

By day I design Plastic Injection Molds for a local shop. I sit all day long at a computer using CAD software.

By night I am a husband, father of 2 boys, deacon, assistant den leader for my sons cub scouts, student, and woodworker. Where I find time to actually do any woodworking I am not really sure.

I really enjoy passing on what I have learned (woodworking and otherwise) to those with less experience, especially kids.

I love having my own kids in my shop and teaching them how to properly use my tools, and of course to put them away when they are done.

I just recently came across LumberJocks. It seems like a unique place to be. I think I am going to be spending a lot of time here.

See ya around!

Welcome. You have found the right place for woodworking. You have some interesting comments on your website about new woodworkers; what tools to start out with, the cost of those tools and lumber. Might make for some interesting discussion here at LumberJocks.

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
