I am an old woodworker who lives In Grand Rapids, Mi. I like to try all kinds of projects and this web site really gives me inspiration and encouragement. The talent in woodworking displayed here is amazing.

I have a small shop with everything on wheels so I can move it into the work area as needed and out of the way when something else needs to be used.

My new avatar was taken at the entrance to the EAA Airventure in Oshkosh, Wi. in July 2015.

Hey. I think I’m really going to like this site. The folks here sound like our guild folks. We have been having a hard time getting a web site for the guild so I’m going to recommend they all join Woodjocks!!

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.

Hi, I did reply to your query re: Banksia Pods and asked of you, a number of questions in order to assist you. Now, I cannot find this `post` to see if there are any answers to my questions. So, in the meantime, if you still require the info for turning the Pods, `click` on this Link :- and if this meets with your requirements let me know, please. Also, if you require more Pods, let me know. They can be sent from Australia and cost around A$5.00 for approx 6” length to around A$14.00 for approx 10” to 12” length. I cannot quote shipping costs or advise the pre-requisites for entry into USA, at this stage.
Let me know how much your Wife paid for your`s from Woodcraft.

wow that is really nice of you!! Thanks a lot!! I will definitely keep that in mind if I’m ever in the area!! I’m trying to figure out what I want to make with my new router table! I’m thinking I’ll try my hand at a small humidor or something! I will post it when I’m finished! Today I’m also going to add some dados on the “poor man’s router table” so I can make a sled for it for some accurate cutting. Probably some stable lets will be the next addition to it!
