Location: Calgary, Alberta, Canada

Hi all,
I am living in Calgary, Alberta, Canada. I got interested in woodworking since summer of 2008 after putting the hardwood floor at my house, and refinishing a small vase. I thought I could do anything.....!! That is where the story start.....!

Working with computer for a living (software guy), it is good to have this hobby after 8 hours sticking my face to a monitor.
In the last couple of years, I have bought tools like crazy and set up a workshop in my garage. I can only work in the summer, the winter is too cold for me to work in the garage. I have few project completed so far and I will try to put the pics in the project section later.

I am still green and l have lots to learn. I hope I will keep learning from the people of this forum and will try to contribute back as I can.

Happy woodworking,
Quang Vu

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…
