Woodworking is my second mid-life crisis. First was buying a Triumph motorcycle and putting 12,000 miles on it my first year. And we have a short riding season here...

Bought this house in June of 2008 and it had a tiny little shop in the basement. I loved the idea of a space to fix stuff, bought a bench grinder, miter saw and drill press, and over the next year I really discovered woodworking......kind of by accident.

My dad taught me the values of hard work from a young age. I studied architecture in school but settled into manufacturing early on. Starting in rubber molded parts for antique and classic cars. Even had a jaunt of running my own company and moved to Southern California for a time.

Still in the rubber business, back in Minnesota...Otherwise I'm in my shop......

This site has helped a lot. Thanks.

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

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

Hi, I am new here. I would love to get some information on how to make the piano pattern cutting boards. For me, that would be a great project.

Have your say...
