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. 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

Thanks folks, this is quite the welcome party!

Been cruising the suggested links and can’t wait to get started on projects once my TS arrives (~6/25/10). Looks like my first project(s) will be building a better workbench that incorporates my 12” miter and a mobile flip top planer cart to slide under same.

Thinking about building the lower bench and cart in these plans:

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…

I noticed you must own a Harley. I have a Yamaha Royal Star 1300. Plan on doing more riding this year.

Hey Mike! I actually tried to send you a personal message to compliment your project and thank you for the link but I was a new member and it wouldn’t let me. I didn’t realize I could just comment like this. Would you mind if we added your project to our customer projects section on dlawlesshardware.com? http://www.dlawlesshardware.com/customer-projects.html
