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

Thanks, everybody. I was fascinated when I came upon this site. I’ve been woodworking for about 5 years. I had a room in the basement that just invited me to fill it with woodworking tools… then I read that you can never have enough clamps or wood… and now clamps and wood fill ALL the space not taken by other tools. I have mostly benchtop-size tools (table saw, drill press, bandsaw)... no room for the big boys. It is a very small shop… topped off with a ceiling just a few inches above my head! I go into a different room to do scrolling and yet another room to let finishing coats dry.

My first project was a cradle for my first grand-daughter… and when I went to test-assemble it, there wasn’t enough room in the shop to do that! So I realized I will not be a furniture maker. I soon gravitated to the scrollsaw and most of my projects involve scrolling in one way or another. I am not a pattern designer, but my preference is to be a little creative in the implementation of a pattern. I just got a Rockler finger joint jig for the router table, so now I’m playing around with box making. When I get a chance, I’ll start posting some of the projects I’ve completed.

At the moment, though, I am way behind in getting Mother’s Day gifts completed… so…. I have to run!

A little funny to be reminded that I joined a year ago… and to see that last year I was behind in making Mother’s Day gifts… just like this year! Imagine that! I have finished some things, so I’m not panicky, but I don’t have much time left. (It is Fri. night as I write this.) Thank goodness for the less stinky finishes like shellac and water-based poly-u.
