Well, I figured my first blog should be an introduction. I found Lumberjocks through the Wood Whisperer site. For the last couple of weeks I would check the site at work and home, starting to build what I can only now call an addiction. I finally signed-up because I felt that if I was going to look, I should at least be able to contribute. a single paragraph.
I am a twice deployed Army Veteran, who was a tank platoon leader the first tour (in 03) and the division’s commo officer for the night shift in 06, and yes I got the nickname Duke because I look like the character. While in the army I bought my first house and got bit by the DIY bug. After some home upgrades I started to wonder what else I could do with these tools. Needless to say I moved on to woodworking. I’ve made some cutting boards (a la Spagnuolo), a couple of quick bandsaw boxes and a lot of pens. At the moment, I am in the process of wiring my garage off a sub-panel because I am sick and tired of tripping over extension cords for my tools. Look for pics of my shop (garage) soon, as I continue to delve into woodworking.
I guess I can contribute two paragraphs…or does this count as three?
