I am a retired Sheetmetal worker. I now make and sell wooden items at craft fairs. Lots of small boxes and toys, along with some trunks and wooden vases I have made.
I started my wood working by trying relief carving and looking for things to carve on. I no longer do much carving.
Some of the first projects I made were functioning fireplace bellows with decrotive fronts. I also made them with inlayed, tooled, leather fronts.

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…

Wisty

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. It’s always a pleasure to welcome a fellow Wisconsin guy to LJ. I look forward to seeing your projects and posts.

To get the most feedback on your projects, it’s best to only post 1 or 2 at a time. This way you will get feedback over several days and from a wide variety of members.

Please enjoy your membership.

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

Glad to include you into the “buddies” category. Having been in commercial HVAC, I am aware of what sheetmetal workers do. It is arguably one of the easiest industries to loose an appendage, more so than woodworking.

I am new to LJs and still trying to figure out how this place works.
