Location: Calgary, Canada

I'm trying to spend more time building, and more specifically finishing. I did a few shop classes in junior high school and built a few things. My dad always built things around the house growing up and so I began to appreciate what he did. His patience and precision have always amazed me, and I hope I can share those qualities some day. The only power operated tool he really uses is a table saw.

The last few years have seen me build a lot of rough things - storage areas at work, a new garage for my dad, working on the basement at a friends house, fences, retaining walls, a nice cedar deck. I'd like to get back to projects with more finesse, with more detail, and that you can have more satisfaction in making. I foresee a lathe in my future as well.....

So I spent two months reading this site almost daily before signing up, slowly inspiring myself to start building again. It's provided a lot of knowledge and inspiration to get back into the shop. I've already got several ideas lined up, and am looking for help. I like to push my boundaries and try something new, so I'll be looking to you LumberJocks!

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
