Hello to all fellow woodworkers! My Dad told me when I was just old enough to hold nails in place for hammering, that all the men for generations in his family had been carpenters. His skill with wood, that he took for granted, taught to him by his father, has been nothing short of “Masterful”. Carve a ball and claw leg? No problem… Acanthus leaves?
You bet !! With no apparent effort, almost like it was just something for his hands to do while he was busy thinking of other more important problems. Yea and I would sit on a stool and look up at all that took place in the woodshop, in awe. How many of us fell asleep with the smell of fresh cut lumber lingering in the house, and the “power saw” humming somewhere close by? My boys are growing up the same way…. I don’t know if I can ever match Dad’s skill level, but at times I enjoy trying. Just a hobbiest, I am still trying to set up a woodshop that’s efficient, and I’m always looking for good used equipment at a good price, as I usually can’t afford new stuff. I’m in southern Michigan close to Ohio, and I could really use a molder/planer right now. Along with too much to list here. Don’t hesitate to contact me if you know of stuff close by, and thanks in advance. So, there’s my introduction, I’ll probably offer some opinions and input (for what its worth) in the blogs at a later date, but now, I think I’ll produce some sawdust, while I consider other more pressing problems of the day.

Welcome to Lumber Jocks Kirks. I found LJs about 9 months ago and have been visiting here virtually every night. I really enjoy the site and have been learning a lot. Like you, I am a hobbiest. I have more projects to do than I have the skill or time to do right now, but I keep learning and I’ll get to them someday. I hope you enjoy your time on the site.

Welcome to LJ, it is an addictive site but in a nice way. I am fairly new myself and have found the people here to be great and have all kinds of advice and solutions to most problems.

You will get many new ideas and your “to build” list will grow faster than kudzu.

Regards
