Location: Edmonton, Alberta

I currently live in Edmonton, Alberta and moved here from Windsor, Ontario about 15 years ago. I have always been an artistic person but was never truly able to use my talents in any other medium until I discovered woodworking.

I am still fairly new at the whole woodworking scene so anything I build from scratch tends to be a bit rough around the edges although I am learning very fast. I mostly prefer to refurbish old furniture by redesigning it or giving it a new purpose from what it was originally designed to do. I was recently laid off from my Land Surveying job of 9 years and decided to take a year off from working full-time to sit down and reassess my future.

I recently received my computer tech certification as well as planning to start a side business building or recycling furniture, mostly finding a way to incorporate style with technology (digital jukeboxes, office furniture, arcade cabinets, etc). I'll take the projects as they come.

I am really happy that I just stumbled across this site. I can’t believe I have not discovered you before. I look forward to making new friends who actually share the same interests as I do and since I have so much to learn? There appears to be no better place than this one.

Hi there,
Welcome to LumberJocks… I joined the site myself almost a year 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…


-- New Project = New Tool... it's just the way it is, don't fight it... :)

Have your say...
