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.

Hey! Thanks for the warm welcome everyone. I am fairly new to woodworking… other than the occasional repair or workbench, I haven’t done much since High School in the 80s. I’ve been working on an old wooden airplane for about a year, and the more I progress, the more new tools I discover to make my project easier (and nicer).

I stumbled on to this site the other day when I was looking ot buy a table saw. There was one posted on Craigslist that a fellow here had written a review on… I ended up not buying it, but I did buy a small Craftsman for a decent price. I don’t have many high end tools, rather, I’ve got a fairly well equipped shop of second hand tools that work well for the small pieces I am working with. I’ve bought a few new items, but my table saw, jointer, router table and welding rig were purchased used for a significant savings over new. My most recent purchase was a Craftsman router table with a 2HP plunge router and a 10 bit box set for $100. It is like new! Can’t wait to use it on the leading edge of my tail this weekend.

Anyhow… I’ve been doing a lot of reading for the past couple of days about table saw safety. There are several no-nos that I wasn’t aware of, like cross-cutting with the fence. Of course, I know that I don’t want my fingers in the blade, but tonight I will be fabricating a variety of different push sticks to help keep my fingers out of my TS.

I’m glad I stumbled on to the site. Lots of good information to read here. Here is a link to my construction logbook if anyone is interested in what I am building.

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…
