I'm a retired firefighter with 32 years on the job. I started my own business prior to retiring (www.macteesinc.com) which started as a hobby and grew into a full time business. Now I have to get another hobby.
Growing up in the 50's, I spent a lot of time with my grandfather who had a shop in his basement, and was accumulating woodworking tools. He was a carpenter, blacksmith, and brick mason. He built houses using a few hand tools like a saw, hatchet hammer, ball of string, level, and lots of nails. He love making furniture and I loved the smell of that dark old basement with dirt floors and fresh sawdust.
I spent almost 30 years painting houses part time and doing minor repairs while working with the fire department. Now I have an older house that's always in need of repair for something.

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 for the warm welcome everybody. As I get into this a little further and get a little more comfortable with the format, I’d love to post some of my “re-do’s” or repairs that I did recently. I’m on this site mainly because of two new tools I purchased recently. A Fein multi-master and the Kreg Jig. I’m not a master craftsman, but I never give up. Again, thanks.
