I was introduced to woodturning about two years ago and have come to really enjoy it. Most of my projects to date have come from wood that I get from my Dad in South Carolina, my in-laws in Alabama, or friends here in Texas. Many pieces have been rescued from various firewood piles.

By far, my favorite work comes from wood that has a story behind it. I filled up the mantel, the entertainment center, the kitchen counter, and all of my shelf space at work with projects.

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 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…

Hello Richard, stumbled onto your page and was pleasantly surprised and quite impressed. All that in only two years of turning. Wow that is impressive ! hard to see how far you are going to take it with this strong a start ! Keep creating as long as you care to. I am 67 and have thought about an Alaskan mill for some time now. I am probably going to have to rope my son in law into helping and come up with the $$ for the 2 man model… or maybe a build it yourself band saw mill… depends on how active my son in law becomes…. I have 6 acres of North Florida woods to work with lots of oaks and Magnolias, etc and lots of strange things growing close to the creek bed… Just thinking for now. nice to see your work, thanks for posting !
