Working with wood has always been a hobby, something my father and I had done together for a number of years.

For my own part, I hadn't done anything further than some home improvement projects, a loft bed for my daughter, and a deck. Projects like these have netted me a garage full of benchtop tools of varying quality.

April 2010 my wife encouraged me to buy a ShopFox Midi lathe. I started turning again, and found myself addicted. Turning pens, bowls and other things has led me to purchase a 14" bandsaw, and a bunch of turning tools, finishes, and other things.

After trying to knock out a few projects for Christmas, I decided that there was more to woodworking than turning. Researching items, and trying a few more projects, the garage needs to be turned into a woodshop. I mean to document its transformation as I can.

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 just about 2 years 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…
I apologize for the late welcome but I am currently serving overseas and don’t have a lot of spare time on my hands.

Enjoy your time here on LJ and pass the word to any of your woodworking buddies about us…


-- New Project = New Tool... it's just the way it is, don't fight it... :)

Have your say...
