Location: Swindon, England

I am a long term tinkerer with wood and other things, I have lately been working as a sash window restorer in the listed buildings sector. But was made redundant (credit crunch etc) .
So now I am self employed and scraping a living working on all kinds of wood related stuff.

Hi . I am Ollie and I have been reading various handy hints and tips from the lumberjocks site for a while and I thought I had better sign up. I realized I must be a lumberjock, because i really quite like sharpening things, and i am always bringing home random wood..I have been making a few things while trying to improve my skills and so I will post some photos. All comments and tips will be helpfull.

Welcome to LJ’s. A better site I have not found. The above comments are true. A fine community of craftsmen as well as ladies and gentlemen. The site is addictive!!!! I went from barely turning on the laptop to checking this site daily if not multiple times per day.
Welcome and add to the skill and conversation. Hope you enjoy as much as I do.

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
