Location: Eloffsdal a suburb in Pretoria South Africa

I am a 47 year old male and stumbled upon this website while browsing the net,it looked interesting and after looking at the projects you guys make I signed up. I enjoy woodworking it makes me relax and I got back into it after years of laying off,and the first project I made was a wooden "neck", let me explain my wife makes jewellery and when I saw the "necks" that she bought and the quality, I thought let me give it a go to see if I can do better.So I look foward to hearing from you guys in the USA and I bet you will have difficulty in pronouncing my nickname which is actually my surname I have the same two first names as one of your great past presidents Franklin Delano Roosevelt.

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
