i am just now getting back into woodworking after a twenty year layoff. However I was just a beginner at that point so maybe I will at least remember a few things and I know I will learn a lot from this site. I am just getting a small shop put together and trying to sort out how to lay it all out.

I am looking forward to having my dad to work with me. He was a long-time woodworker but gave it up a few years ago due to age and health (He will be 88 in two weeks!!). He is giving me most of his tools and I can tell he is excited about being able to "show" me how to use them. I am thrilled that we will be able to work together and I can learn from him. I think this is going to be a win-win situation for both of us!!

Welcome George. 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.

Thanks to all of you for the kind remarks….you make me feel like I am one of the crowd and I haven’t even cut a board yet!! :-) Still trying to get the shop in shape to put some tools in it and get started.

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
