I caught the woodworking bug in 2007 and have tried to keep something on the bench or lathe ever since.
I was fortunate enough to have been introduced to woodworking by my father. His passion for the craft and his attention to detail are what I hope to carry on from him. After his passing in 2007, I inheirited several pieces of his equipment and lots of his hand tools. I had no formal training other than the few projects that we had completed together. I am lucky enough to have a community college near me with an excellent woodworking program. This has enabled me to gain some confidence with the equipment in the shop and has allowed me access to equipment that I either can't afford right now - or might not otherwise have in a home workshop.
I have visited this site quite frequently prior to joining and have gained a ton of insight from the members here. I have been blown away by the positive nature of the message boards and by some of the feedback and experience that most of the members here share. I hope to begin sharing my experience (both good and bad) with the members here at lumberjocks and hopefully we can all continue to learn from one another... ...because I definitely have much more to learn.
