Very amateur woodworker in Tampa Florida. If you learn from your mistakes then I should be a genius.

Woodworking is a great stress reliever from my job. Unfortunately my job takes me out of town 5 days a week, so my progress on projects is very slow.

I really appreciate the value of an active online community like lumberjocks as it gives me a chance to learn from the collective wisdom of some very talented people.

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

I was born and raised in St. Pete. Moved away because it was getting to crowded. Moved North of Atl. Ga. Now I know what crowded really is. Welcome to LJs. Hope you love it here as much as I do.
