Location: Tampa, FL

I am originally from Tampa Bay area, FL. I have been working with wood in one way or another since I can remember. My Grandfather on my mothers side was a carpenter who taught me a great deal. My father is a self taught boat builder and all around wood worker, as well as an antique tool dealer and collector.

The first tool I ever owned was a Stanley #1 that my father gave me when I was about 5 years old. I remember sleeping with it a couple of times, it meant a lot to me. I worked with my father off and on through college. We mainly did decks and heavier construction type jobs as well as hanging doors, siding, etc. In the past few years I have gotten more interested in finish work and making things look "prettier".

It has been really nice looking into tools again and all those memories flooding back of growing up in antique stores, swap meets, junk stores, garage sales, jockey lots, and flea markets. My dad has even donated to my interest in planes and other hand tools.

Thanks in advance for all of your advise and criticism.

Hi there,
Welcome to LumberJocks… I joined the site myself just about 2 years 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…
I apologize for the late welcome but I am currently serving overseas and don’t have a lot of spare time on my hands.

Enjoy your time here on LJ and pass the word to any of your woodworking buddies about us…
