Location: Marco Island, FL

Just starting out with woodworking but it seems to be taking over my life. In real life, I write computer software for a living. As a matter of fact, as a wood worker, I make a pretty good software engineer. Seriously, though, I need help. As much as I enjoy my new hobby, I don't seem to have much innate talent for it.

I'm 41, been married for 3 years, and have a 2 year old daughter who as adopted from Vietnam. And that is officially more than anyone reading this really wants to know about me.

Welcome to Lumber Jocks. We don’t mind getting to know you. We might even find that we like you when we get to know you and then you would have two hobbies that waste a lot of time because this place can get to be a habit. Enjoy your time here and do comment on anything that strikes your fancy. What would be “Ersatz” about you? Du bist nicht Ersatz.

Thos is right.. I found this place 11 days ago, and I get on here now about 20 times a day. You will find that everyone here is more than willing to help with just about anything. Good to have you as a Lumberjock!
