Hi, I'm Jerry and I live in Canberra Australia. I play music (fiddle) - mainly Celtic folk/Irish and am very much a hobby woodworker. I've made a few small things, but got more serious recently when I built a dining table from an old ribbon gum tree that burnt outside our house during the 2003 Canberra Bushfire... The house was okay but we lost the garden - close enough for my taste! My workshop is a garage - the car stays in the car port - and I have a fair tool set for a hobbyist - last big purchase was a 6" long bed jointer to smooth up the lumber from the tree, although it does much more than that!

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
