I started woodworking at an early age as my father was a carpenter and I used to play with the left over wood -"making things & helping" !!! I did a woodworking course at school and made a spinning wheel amongst other things. I had a hiatus when I had a family and had many other things to occupy my time. When my only daughter went to school I had some spare time so I took up scroll sawing. My first and second scroll saw were a cheap Ryobi. They were sufficient in the beginning and taught me the basics about the craft however when it started to annoy me when I couldn’t do what I wanted to do I (only recently ) lashed out and bought a new Excaliber! Not only did I buy that I also bought a decent bandsaw.

Now I am really back after a break of a few years and I now have the time and patience to do some serious woodworking – on the weekends anyway.
Since being on LJ's for a while there is just soooooo many things that I want to do. There just isn't enough time!!!

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

Hello,
I like your scroll work and congrats on the new tools. I think if you build a nice rough splintery bed pan you won’t have to clean up after those oldies as much.

Welcome to LJ’s and I thing we have a wrench for every nut that comes here. It can be a great experience and if you are looking boxjoints it is probably here somewhere.
