Location: Gulf Breeze, FL (near Pensacola, FL)
Website:

I am a retired Navy vet. I served for 31 years in various billets as well as two tours in SSN and SSBN submarines. I will be 71 y/o in February 2011. I have completed a few projects including a bookcase, a cabnet, a fireplace cover, a bench seat, and a 3-dimentional cross. I enjoy making sawdust out of good wood. Most are projects of necessity, but a few are ones that I desired to tackle. I have few power tools and therefore joints are hand made and pinned. I lost some tools and wood through hurricane Ivan.
Update: I have more tools and as the posts indicate, I've been fairly busy making stuff. I am gainfully employed keeping the house and grounds up as well as making sawdust in the garage.

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

Tom, I fully understand “addictive”. I’ve just signed on and its been 2 hours all ready. Time to sign off and work on the “honey do” list. Being retired just means not getting paid for your work.

Welcome. You have found the right place for woodworking. A great group of people willing to help. Looking forward to see your projects and comments. Work safe in the shop and don’t forget to use pushsticks.

Hi there,
Welcome to LumberJocks… I joined the site myself a little over a year 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
