I've had a devleoping interest in woodworking for a number of years, and have finally started taking steps to turn it into a hobby. I work with computers in my daily life, and I'm finding woodworking to be the complete antithesis of computer work - artistic, organic, and it demands that you slow down and take your time.

I found LumberJocks through Marc Spagnuolo's (aka "The Wood Whisperer") podcast. If you haven't given it a look, I highly suggest that you check it out.

My long-term goal is to get into the construction of musical instruments such as hammered dulcimers and psalterys. However, I am really just taking the first steps down that road.

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
