Hello everyone,

My name is Billy Strong, I have been woodworking for over 2 years now and slowly building my shop. I am currently in the US Navy and have been for over 20 years now. I really have no intentions of retiring just yet as I am honored to serve this great Nation.

I do envy all the woodworkers out there and their talents as I grow each day in the shop from my mistakes and reading about others. This website is exceptional place to be and proud to be a Lumberjock.


-- When you are at a point in life and you think there is nothing more to learn, then you must understand that you have learned nothing at all. Billy

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

Hey Chief,

Looks like some “fish” over your left pocket in the photo. I was a pig boat sailor on USS Odax (SS484), ‘68-’72. We’ve always got room for one more bubblehead. Don’t get too settled-in, though. You’ve got the next watch!

Welcome from an old ET!

Welcome aboard there sailor! Tis a good site that you have found, I’ve sure enjoyed the straight and narrow line of woodworking and no deviation into off the wall subjects. Might try as a starter in making “Boats”, Ha!
Semper Fi for sure and thanks for your service.
